  X11 and OpenOffice on Mac OS X
Subject:   problem

Although OpenOffice works perfectly and it seems to be no problem with X11, every time I launch X11, I never get that window that looks like a Terminal window, even if I choose Terminal in the Application menu. Does anybody have an idea?

    There's no particular reason you need to get an xterm, if you're satisfied with the Mac native "Terminal" program. In fact, things like cut-and-paste using command-c and command-v don't work in xterm, so it can be kind of frustrating.

    Still, if you really need to run an xterm, you can launch one from a regular terminal window. Just type in 'xterm'. If you get a "Command not found" error, type in '/usr/X11R6/bin/xterm'

    If you get an error like "xterm Xt error: Can't open display: " then type in something like this "setenv DISPLAY localhost:0" and then enter the xterm command again.

    PS you can copy/paste in X11 by selecting the block you want to copy and then option-clicking. The selected text wil be pasted where the cursor is. Actually, I just experimented and option-click in X11 will paste the clipboard cut or copied from native apps like Terminal and Safari. I don't know how you can put something in X11 on the clipboard to export to native apps though.
