Thread: X11 Install Befuddlement
07-07-2005, 02:01 PM #1abcdwebkateGuestX11 Install Befuddlement
X11 is giving me some problems - when I install it, neither the icon nor the xterm window shows up in xcode tools, utilities or applications. Spotlight search can't find it. When I try to install it again, it says "You can't install this - newer software version exists on your computer."
I tried to delete the unused X11sdk.pkg files in spotlight and it told me "you do not have sufficient privilages"
I went into users/me/Library and tried to delete the x11sdk.pkg in terminal with rm and rmdir to no avail.
App fac was not of much help.

Anyway, the package you want is on the root of the Tiger disc, under the dir "additional\optional packages" (don't remember the exact wording.) When you install it it should appear in the application list.
The reason I had trouble with this was that on my 12" iBook screen, some of the folders on the Tiger cd were situated several rows below all others in the Finder- so I didn't think there were any more directories on the cd. Bloody stupid icon view!

Thanks for the tip - you are totally right. I finally found a site today that solves the Mac X11 for Tiger stuff here.
Now I am happily playing with The Gimp :headphone
