Using X11 in Mountain Lion
Authored by: softweyr on Nov 26, '12 12:36:37PM

@mzp3769: The "window manager" is the Mac OS window manager; the XQuartz display uses the Mac display as the X root window.

I installed XQuartz after my Mountain Lion upgrade, loaded and started the plist, and everything works. (I hate reboots.) I don't even have to run xterm; X applications start just fine from the OS X now. Beautiful. I mostly use X to run Eclipse and SlickEdit from Linux development hosts, and X over ssh is working perfectly, from Terminal.
