Open D Tuning

The notes you need to tune to for open D are; D  A  D  F#  A   D

It can be helpful to have a chromatic tuner, such as this one by TC Electronic, to get into this tuning. 

The D chord can be played by just strumming the open strings (that's the idea of Open D!)

G and A major chords can be played with a flat first finger barring 5th and 7th frets.

The minor chords in this key can be played at 2nd, 4th and 9th frets either just by fretting string 7 at these frets, or with the chord shapes shown later in this video

Here's a lesson to help you get into Open D Tuning, and I highly advise watching this lesson if you are new to this!
