    So I just updated to lepoard (AHHHHHH!) and I forgot it creates problems for gimp. I went through all of the information on how to install and I am still having problem. Any help would be appreciated.

    1. I updated X-11 from the recommended site.
    2. I downloaded the gimp for intel macs with leopard
    3. I tried to start gimp
    4. an X-11 alert came up that says : you have an existing ~/.xinitrc file. Whindows displayed by X11 applications may not have title bars, or may look different to windows displayed by native applications. Would you like to move aside the existing file and use the standard X11 environment?

    whether I click yes or no I begin to pinwheel and then X11 changes to not responding. If I try to force quite the programs it closes and then just opens itself back up with the same alert displayed.

    Please help! I don't want to have to go back to photoshop. I like gimp better.

    My system came with leopard, and I've not had any problems :eek: I would recommend deleting the files and redownload X11 then gimp...maybe it's that or a bad port? from where you downloaded.

    try running the following command in a terminal :

    Code:
    rm ~/.xinitrc
    
    and also try reinstalling latest XQuartz. Also make sure to update Leopard to at least 10.5.2

    That completely worked. I am not a computer computer program, but I assuming rm means remove. Does that work for removing any file?
