Tis a sad day indeed. I installed Gimp 2.6. and made certain that the X11 was up to date, but still get the message no X11. Humpf! I am running 10.4.11 and while competant I am no software engineer to figure this out. All and any help wil be deeply appreciated. I have 20 kids at school counting on me to get this up and running so we can enter an national History Day competition.
