[Solved] OpenOffice 4.1.5 won't open - Mac

Postby Champy72 » Mon Oct 22, 2018 10:54 pm

Hi
Having used and loved OpenOffice on my Windows PC, I wanted to download 4.1.5 onto my newly acquired MacBook Air.
The issue I have is that when you try to download it from an official site, sourceforge.net takes over for the download, and Mac will not open it as it is not from the official site!

I have tried various ways of downloading, and have read everything I can, but still no joy.

Any ideas, anyone?

Thanks

See [Tutorial] Mac FAQ Q05/A05

This is caused by Apple's Gatekeeper. The above will tell you how to allow the install.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.6 on Xubuntu 18.04.2 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP
