This file is seven years old, so I'm not sure why it's showing up here now. In case anyone is confused, X11 is installed by default under recent versions of the Mac OS. If you're not satisfied with the built-in version, there's a community-supported alternative at xquartz.macosforge.org.

After installing it DOESN'T WORK. This is the second time I've tried this.
