X11 help needed.

in Mac Software edited January 2014
I installed 10.4.2 on my iBook, along with X11, but when I try to use such programs as the Gimp and SodiPodi, they start and just quit. I checked the console and it said something about FontConfig not being configured correctly.

Help, please?

    Did the SDK get installed?

    Yes. I found the answer on macosxhints.com, but everytime I try to do the commands in the Terminal (as root), it says "Command not found". Do I need to be in a certain directory?

    Yes. You have to specify the full path to the program. Look in the/usr directory. There should be something like X11, cd into that directory and look for a bin directory. That should be where the utility is.

    OK. Found the utility, but it still says "Cannot find command". Hmm.
