How can I remove all traces (of both Leopard and the Tiger X11) and
reinstall the Leopard one?
I have now got X11 to run from /usr/X11/X11.app (removed using the
commands here: http://aaroniba.net/articles/x11-leopard.html and
reinstalled from Leopard disk) but the X11.app (launcher) in /
Applications/Utilities/ won't actually load up xterm and hence X11.
I think this might be something to do with the X11 Launch Agent, but
I have no idea how to fix it.
What command would I need to run to set the launch agent back to its
Any other ideas?
Am I anywhere near right?
We should be able to fix this, but I need a bit more information.
If you want to start poking around in Terminal, I'd be interested in
seeing the output of these commands:
$ ls -l /usr /usr/X11 /System/Library/LaunchAgents/org.x.X11.plist
(we want to see that all of the files look like they're in the right
$ echo $DISPLAY
(we need to make sure your DISPLAY variable is being correctly set by
launchd; it should be something like "/tmp/launch-xxxxx/:0")
If all of that works, just try running "xterm &" from Terminal.
You also might try running "/usr/X11/X11.app/Contents/MacOS/X11 &"
from Terminal; that should manually start up the X server.
