Problem (& solution) starting Gimp 2.6.7 under Snow Leopard

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Just a hopefully useful error report. I'm running Snow Leopard (Mac OS X 10.6) and Gimp 2.6.7. When I boot and log in to the Mac, I always pre-start the X11 package, to run the nedit editor. On my previous setup, under Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and Gimp 2.4, Gimp would start fine whenever invoked. Now under Snow Leopard, when invoked Gimp stalls, no Gimp windows display, and an endless cycle of tries and retries to start X11 shows in the system log. (X11 is already started).

Solution: quit X11 and allow Gimp to restart it, after which Gimp comes up fine. Thereafter, for the rest of the login session, Gimp starts straight away. 

Sounds like Gimp 2.6.7 needs a mod to better detect that X11 is already running.

Hope that's helpful. Let me know if you would like the system log.
