View Full Version : x 11

Hello - could someone explain what x11 is and how to use it with The Gimp which I just downloaded. I tried to get this to work before and just got confused. I have a dear old emac running 10.3.9
ps- I did try to search forums but the page just refreshed without any results or a no results message:confused:

Which version of The GIMP did you download?
I find the easiest one to use is available at http://gimp-app.sf.net

It installs like regular Mac OS X applications and can be added to the dock as normal. It also launches X11 automatically when you run it.
