10.4: Provide Crossover with a missing quartz-wm
Authored by: deejemon on Feb 01, '07 04:28:10PM

There's a good proportion of users for whom the full X11 is a total waste of time and space. There's a reason CrossOver specifically extracts that file instead of running the whole X11 installer. I would never tell one of my users to install the whole X11 system just to get one file. That's like "I just need this one font", "Well, go and install the entire Microsoft Office".

I would suggest that Pacifist might be an easier way to go for some people, rather than poking around in the installer package and the gzipped archive. Just extract quartz-wm using Pacifist and then follow the rest of the tip with regards to putting it where it's needed.
