Hello all,

I'm trying to install the latest SWI-Prolog (see On a Mac, it uses X11 for its graphics.

Everything works fine on my PowerPC Mac, but when I try to run SWI-Prolog after installing on my Intel Mac I get an error message:

Library not loaded: /opt/local/lib/libXft.2.dylib

Why does it look in /opt/local/lib? Did you set the DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable? *Don't do this*. If you feel compelled to do it, use DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH instead.

It seems that the directory /usr/X11R6/lib has libXft on the PowerPC Mac, but not on the Intel Mac. Yet both machines are running OS10.4 and X11 1.1.3.

Has libXft been accidentally omitted from Apple's Intel X11 distribution? Is there a fix?

It has not been omitted, at least not in the X11 installed here on my Intel machine. Sometimes, however, the Apple installer forgets to install random files. Reinstalling usually helps then.
