Launch fink apps from xterm in Apple's X11
Authored by: Ranger Rick on Jun 22, '04 07:47:45AM

All you really need to do to set up your xinitrc is to do:

echo "source /sw/bin/" > ~/.xinitrc
cat /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc >> ~/.xinitrc

...basically, all you need is Apple's xinitrc, but with the source line at the top. You still need to put "source /sw/bin/ " in the apple menu ones though, because those menu items are created before the xinitrc is processed, so they don't know about the environment that it sets up.
