Try this:

1) With Apple's X11 running, select Applications -> Customize.  This 
should bring up a dialog for X11 Application Menu.

2) Click Add Item - this should give you a new blank line hightlighted.

3) Double click in the Name column, type "Open Office"

4) Double click in the Command column, 
   type "/Applications/OpenOffce.org1.0.1/program/soffice"
   (Verify the path is the same for you).

5) Click Done

Then you can start it from the X11 Applications Menu.  This works for
me, and I don't have XDarwin installed.

I've noticed lately that the paranoid fear of computers becoming intelligent and taking over the world has almost entirely disappeared from the common culture. Near as I can tell, this coincides with the release of MS-DOS. (Larry DeLuca)
