No Pre-existing X11 Install
Authored by: SonicMcTails on Jan 10, '03 03:40:54PM

I removed X11 with dpkg (dpkg --remove --force-all xfree86-system xfree86-rootles) and then tryed to use this. It works, and installs, but I can't get XDarwin working (I had reinstalled manually), nor can I call up XWindows from console using xinit or startx. Anyone know a fix short of reinstall Fink's copy of X11 ?

Why reinvent the wheel? Just take a look here:

Or, if you can read spanish, I explain everything here:

Is /usr/X11R6/bin in your $PATH ? or $path (for tcsh) startx is definitely in X11User.pkg: % lsbom -s /Library/Receipts/X11User.pkg/Contents/Archive.bom | grep -i startx ./usr/X11R6/bin/startx ./usr/X11R6/lib/X11/doc/html/startx.1.html ./usr/X11R6/man/man1/startx.1 Try typing the full path and see if that works: /usr/X11R6/bin/startx
