./startx: line 117: xinit: command not found

    I installed this on MACOS X. I did a find for the xinit and found a directory in /private/X11 area, but couldnt find a script or an executable called xinit. Did I miss something?

      Not sure how you installed, which installer you used, and which version of Mac OS X you installed on. In any case, xinit should be in /usr/X11R6/bin. If xinit is there, your problem is likely that you have not set your path correctly. In this case the easiest thing to do is to double click the XDarwin application in /Applications, rather then using startx.
