    Dear Lisanet,

    Last week my hd crashed and a got a new fresh hd with clean Snow Leopard; I restored my data from TimeCapsule and everything - I thougth - were OK. Before the crash I had: GIMP 2.6.11 and X11 2.3.5 on Snow Leopard 10.6.6.

    It appeared that X11 was NOT installed and Software Update doesn't install it. Apparently the MacStore unchecked it.
    First I didn't know what to do. I have MacPorts installed and removed again.
    The I found here to install from DVD the X11; I did. Installed GIMP 2.6.11 for Snow Leopard again (just dragging to Applications) from the opened .dmg file.

    Below is the information from a brushed Console (all messages) after I first started Gimp from the dock (logo in the dock bounced a couple of times and the program closed itself; X11 didn't start visually in the dock) and then started X11 from the dock.

    I hope this gives some clues about what is happening here.
    Thanks in advance for helping.

    Correction: when I startup X11 manually it appears to be Xquartz XQuartz 2.3.4 (xorg-server 1.4.2-apple45)

    Well,

    I thought, why not try TimeCapsule: I restored X11.app from january 1st (before my hd crash); this file is 5MB, so easily done.
    This is XQuartz 2.3.6 (xorg-server 1.4.2-apple56) when I use 'About X11' and it WORKS!!!

    I'm happy and can start using Gimp again.

    I'm not sure where I got this more recent version of X11; I guess via a Software Update.

    Sorry for bothering, Jildert

    Gimp, gladly works again.

    I again took a look at the Console; still some remarks can be found here.

    Please forgive my ignorance but I'm not a programer develleper.  I received notice that my X11 had been updated, everything is pretty much set to "automatic", and now I can't use GIMP. I'm able to open the App  but that's all.  As soon as I attempt to do anything, even "zoom", X11 Crashes.  I don't understand.  To my knowledge, all works as it should and I've not change anything.  I use GIMP a lot, to doctor images and such, it's the only App of its kind I have.  Is there anything I can do to make it work again?

    I have a late 2006 17" iMac with 1TB HD, 4GB Ram (I know.. I know.. it can only read 3 GB not 4) and have had Lion installed since the day it came out.  So far, everything has been working fine.

    Do I need to take GIMP out back and slap it around a bit in order for it to get along with the "new" X11 ?!?

    Any input would be appreciated.
