What OS are you running, 10.4 or 10.5? What's the result of

echo $DISPLAY

What version of gtk2 do you have installed?

port installed gtk2

I'm using 10.5

echo $DISPLAY output: :0.0

port installed gtk2 output: The following ports are currently installed:

gtk2 @2.12.9_0+x11 (active)

I'm using 10.5

echo $DISPLAY output: :0.0

Note that on 10.5, X11 works best when you let the system set DISPLAY, which will cause it to end up looking like /tmp/launch-Pvbkhm/:0, this way it can automatically be launched when not running.

I've been using the terminal instead of X11 due to X11 not keeping settings. Does it make a difference.

Arggh! I just fired up X11 & pidgin is working. I guess we can close this ticket

I use Terminal as well (instead of xterm), but DISPLAY is using the launchd-style setting instead of just :0.0. :0.0 will work, but you have to have X11.app running prior, as you found out. The launchd version has the convenience of automatically launching X11.app when needed.
