    Because you ran the wrong installer. There are a bunch of threads here on Mac Forums already about how to install X11 but really fast, insert your Tiger DVD. When the window pops open, scroll down toward the bottom and look for Optional Installs. Click on that and it will get to a selection screen. Expand Applications and check X11 then continue and it will install the full X11. Then it will work.

    It worked! Oh Bless your heart!

    I am sorry, I did not know that there were threads that already existed. But thank you for responding with quick info.

    Don't have Optional Installs Folder
    Hi,

    I'm trying to follow the steps people are outlining on this forum to install X11, but on my original installation disk for my G4 iMac, I can't find any Optional Installs folder. I've scrolled down, I've looked all over, but there's just no sign of the Optional Installs folder, and of course, the X11 thing I downloaded from the web is useless. Is there anything I can do to get X11 on my computer, or am I just unlucky and will never get to use Gimp?

    Which version of OSX is your install CD/DVD?

    I doubt 10.4 Tiger came with the iMac G4.
