Graphics Program Help: Mac OSX 10.4
by sablia - 1/2/07 1:48 PM
In August, I got a new computer... iMac. The processor is a 2 GHz Intel Core DUo. Memory is 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM. On my old computer, I'd make graphics on a free downloadable program called GIMP (http://www.gimp.org). GIMP needs X11 to run on a mac. I downloaded both X11 and GIMP to my new imac and tried to run it. X11 opened and GIMP opened for a few seconds. The window didn't have time to launch before it closed down. X11 remained open.
Yesterday, after being quite fed up, I downloaded a brogram called InkScape (http://www.inkscape.org). However, when I tried to run it, the same problem happened: X11 opened, the InkScape icon appeared in my toolbox, but before the program could open, the InkScape icon disappeared and only X11 was left open.
My computer is running OSX 10.4.8 and my old computer (OSX) didn't have this problem. Can anybody help me?
