MacOS 10.6.3 or later is required to install this package. Default X11 Server If this is your first time installing XQuartz, you may wish to logout and log back in to update your DISPLAY environment variable. Changes in 2.7.9. /opt/X11/bin/xterm -fn 6x12 -geometry 120x60+810+20 -sl 1500 -vb -bg lightgreen & else. Echo 'This is not a X-Window. 'echo ' PLEASE start Xquartz and restart your script from the X11 window.' I use a variation of this to open 60 small windows at the same time on 60 different systems on a 30 inch monitor for password changes. Most users are running XQuartz version 11 which was released in 2016. On the other hand, M1 MacBooks introduce a whole new system architecture. These devices are powered by the first family of chips that Apple has specifically designed for MacBook computers. To answer your question, the short answer is Yes. X11 in MacPorts is functional and native on the M1. (I should know, I did some of the work to get it running.) sudo port install xorg MacPorts equivalent of Xquartz.app is X11.app. X11/XQuartz is the bridge/translator for Mac users. When you open Inkscape for the first time you'll notice that it looks like a Windows app. The biggest problem I've had with it is getting used to the window menu rather than using the top bar like an OS X app, so I inadvertently click into X11 frequently.

Explanation needed[edit]

It would be really great if this page would explain if X Windows system allows for a X application to show up on the Mac desktop just like any other 'native' application. Or, is this a septate desktop? What I am getting at is, how does this work from the users perspective? Dfeig 18:35, 13 November 2006 (UTC)


where do you download x11 for mac os x 10.4.4? they say it's on the CD, but I don't have that cd anymore. nowhere to download it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Conchis (talk • contribs) 22:53, 17 December 2005

First, sign your posts, Conchis. Second, Wikipedia talk pages are not supposed to be help forums. Third, I will help you anyway, by leaving a message on your talk page. BDWillTalkContribs 08:23, 29 March 2006 (UTC)

X11.app required[edit]


Certain applications require X11.app (or other X Window compatibility) to run on Mac OS X. Some examples include:

Are there other notable examples? Should a list like this be included in the article? — 04:39, 14 May 2006 (UTC)

Possssssssssssssibly. OTOH, the next version of GTK+ will apparently be Quartz-native, meaning OOo and Gimp won't need X11. (The Quartz code is alpha-to-early-beta at present, meaning apps using it will sometimes actually start before crashing ;-) - David Gerard 13:50, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
imo including a list like that is opening a can of worms. there are lots of X apps. —Preceding unsigned comment added by A plague of rainbows (talk • contribs) 16:14, 13 December 2007 (UTC)
The support for windowing systems such as X11, Wayland or Quartz (see article display server), is usually included in the toolkit: GTK+, Qt, wxWidgets, GNUstep, etc. Programs written with GTK+2/Qt3 will require XQuartz or an equivalent program to run on OS X, if the support for Quartz has only been added to GTK+3/Qt 4. User:ScotXW[email protected] 15:02, 21 May 2014 (UTC)


I took out Category:Compatibility layers - it isn't anything of the sort, it's just an X server with some funky hooks into MacOS X - David Gerard 13:50, 21 August 2006 (UTC)


The general trend for other distros is to move away from XFree86 towards X.org, mostly because that is where all the active extension development is occurring. What are Apple's future plans for X11.app? --IanOsgood 03:18, 18 October 2006 (UTC)

XQuartz/etc, has had its own mailing list for several years, and is, for example, no more 'led' by X.Org than Cygwin or the various Linux- and BSD-ports. TEDickey (talk) 23:36, 14 September 2016 (UTC)

Name change[edit]

I disagree with the articles current title. Putting .app at the end of the application's title usually leads to a redirect to application name (application) or application name (software) (for example Safari.app or Address Book.app), therefore I say the article should be moved to X11 (application) or X11 (software).


If no one has any objections I'll make the move myself on 20 October, 2008. stevenrasnick 10:02 (UTC) 19 October, 2008

I'd move it to XQuartz, X11.app no longer exists as of Mountain Lion. Mauro Bieg (talk) 21:45, 14 August 2012 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The result of the proposal was moved. --BDD (talk) 19:41, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

X11.app → XQuartz – X11.app no longer exists in recent versions of OS X, the project name was changed to XQuartz. Eladts (talk) 16:18, 23 December 2013 (UTC)

  • Weak support. I'm not a Mac user, but my sister is. Despite this, I know a lot more about UNIX-compatible systems than she does. So therefore, I don't know which term is actually preferred in the Mac user community, but if the official name is now XQuartz, then that's what I think the article should be named after.
