Open Office has been slow to develop a full version for Mac. Try Neo Office instead as it has a fully Mac-compatible version. The Open Office for mac is expected in a couple of months.

Adobe has stopped opening documents on my Imac G5. Solution please?


Hi David.Forget adobe and use Preview - it's installed in your imac.Single click a document. then go to File - Get Info in the menu bar.Near the bottom of the window that opens you will see this5_9_2012_9_29_04_pm.pngChange the bit where it says Open With, to Previes and then click the button underneath that says Change All.
This will change all Adobe PDF files and other PDF files so that they open with preview - that's how it works on all the macs here, no Adobe Reader at all.

I am not able to use "open GL" on my imac


Hi, Sorry to hear you are having problems,
So tell me, what version of the Mac OS are you running and how much Ram do you have...
I suspect that your iMac does not meet the requirements for CS4 to function at 100%, you need at least a 2Ghz machine and 2 Gig of Ram...
If you are not running MacOS x 10.5.6, I recommend upgrading to 10.5.6 and installing the XCode from Apple:
go to the Xcode page on Apple's developer site. Downloading from there requires a membership, but you can get a basic one for free.

IMac won't recognize the files on a PC


In order for a Mac to open files generated on a PC, you must have a program capable of reading these files. The new version of Microsoft Office defaults to saving files in a new format which is not compatible with earlier versions. This can be rectified by 'Back Saving' files to an earlier version of Office in the 'Save' menu.
If you have files that you know can be opened with an application that is installed on the Mac, ctrl/click (right click) on the file and chose 'Open With' from the drop down menu. This will allow you to choose the application.

Airport Extreme 802.11g


At this point you are much better off installing a USB wireless antennae than spending money on an Airport card, cracking open the iMac, and installing it.

USB wireless adapters are cheap, plentiful, and have more capabilities than the generation of Airport cards that were made for G5 iMacs.

what type of file is it that you are trying to open, sometimes you will see gobbledegook if your computer doesn't have the right program to handle a PC word processing and your mac doesn't have Microsoft Office installed. It also could happen with other type of file such as an image, video etc.



Open office can open a number of word documents:

Gimp for macintosh opens a lot of image files:
http://www.gimp.org/downloads/

also if you know what type of file it is, try adding an extension to it by placing a dot then follow it by typing the filetype. For a word document type in .doc for instance
