Issues installing under the Mac OSX - X11 - Aqua

Can't see a thing

Postby msraskin » Tue Dec 11, 2007 4:44 am

I installed X11 and OpenOffice 2.3 on my iBook (twice, just in case I did it wrong the first time). OOo opens fine in Writer, which is what I want to use, but I can't see a thing. All the letters and images are fractured and faint. I've changed the preferences on X11, can't access any for OOo.

I'm sure it is a simple thing for someone who knows what they are doing.

Any suggestions for me?

You probably have

1) bad color number : change for MILLIONS of colors in X11 preferences

2) set Fullsccreen mode in X11 preferences.

Start X11, uncheck Fullsscreen mode, and you should be able to see appear.

Last, please have a look at the Howto, from the official Mac porting page :
