So OO2.1 opens Writer by default in Mac OS X, at which point I can load any of the other apps. I have downloaded jakeosx's icon pack from: http://neowiki.neooffice.org/index.php/Launcher_-_Developer, but when I try the icons I keep getting this error:

"No valid installation at: /Applications/OpenOffice.org 2.1.app/Contents/openoffice.org"

Are there any other options for me to load OO apps (other than Writer) individually in Mac OS X?

it is possible that is an bug in my code, as i wrote those for 2.0, not 2.1, i'll try to take a look and figure it out for you.

the other option, much more low tech, but it works, is to make a blank template file for each program, and simply double click the template to open the program.

I just got OpenOffice on my iBook. Being new to Mac, but I have use OpenOffice on Linux, I got the pdf and read how to get rid of the Xterm window. Now I want to do this, have an icon to pull up writer and then calc. Not start it up, have to go to aother window. Is there a list of icons NOT for neo office?

i made some for openoffice to start in the programs, though there may be some issue with using it with 2.1 (i haven't had time to check the code yet)

here is a link:

http://neowiki.neooffice.org/index.php/Launcher_-_Developer#OpenOffice.org_Icons

i hope to have time to go over it with 2.1 and double check.
