Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables XINIT_CFLAGS
and XINIT_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

Do you have X11 installed? If not, get it from here.

Is this Leopard by any chance?

Make sure you've install the X11 SDK from Xcode if you're using the unofficial Xquartz releases.

comment:3 Changed 12 years ago by pgijnxn02@…

This is on Tiger (10.4.11). I have X11, Xcode, and the X11SDK, and I have some working X11 applications from macports.

My hope was that this package would upgrade my version of X11 so I could install gnome-desktop ( I looked at Xquartz, which looked like it would also be a solution, but I see that's only for Leopard. Hmm. Is there any way to upgrade X11 on Tiger to support Xrandr 1.2?

Thanks for your help.

Owner: changed from macports-tickets@… to bbyer@…

Attached patch uses the x11prefix variable to set PKG_CONFIG_PATH instead of hardcoding /usr/X11.
