Installing Gimp 2.6.8 help

Postby SeerowsKindness » Sat Jun 26, 2010 1:29 pm

I'm trying to install Gimp 2.6.8 on a Mac OS X 10.5.8 computer, and I'm having some problems. When I open Gimp, it launches X11 twice (two icons appear in the dock). One of them appears to work fine, while the other one times out. A window also appeared the first time in X11 saying "bash-3.2$," however that no longer happens. Nothing ever happens with the Gimp window, and it eventually times out as well. When I ran Gimp from the Terminal, it said this:

Last login: Sat Jun 26 08:39:12 on ttys000
/Applications/Gimp.app/Contents/MacOS/Gimp ; exit;
spots-macbook:~ Spot$ /Applications/Gimp.app/Contents/MacOS/Gimp ; exit;
find: /Users/Spot/Library/Application Support/Gimp/help: No such file or directory
2010-06-26 09:17:47.425 defaults[18995:10b]
The domain/default pair of (org.x.X11, dpi) does not exist
Terminated
logout

[Process completed]


Any ideas as to how I should proceed from here would be greatly, greatly appreciated. Thank you!

ETA: I also installed X11 from a CD, which--having browsed the forums a little bit--is apparently not what I was supposed to do (?). However, before I installed it, Gimp would simply open and close right away, without ever opening X11.

Have you tried updating X11?

Yes. I ran the Software Update and X11 didn't come up. Although I'm not well-versed in X11 at all. Should I download the newest version directly from Apple?

Um, I think so, I'm not a Mac user so I don't know about these things, but there is a Mac user who stops by every few days, she should be able to help more.

Actually, yeah, I found an upgrade for X11, and now it works. I should have searched harder for that originally. Thank you!
