Mac OS X 10.7 Lion DOES Ship With X11

October 06, 2011  •  Leave a Comment

And I’ve got the eyes to prove it. There seems to be some concern online that Mac OSX Lion ‘ships’ (can we even say that any more?) without X11. I did some searching online and found this tip!
Open a Terminal window, type ‘xeyes’ at the prompt and you’ll see X11 staring right back at you, and the "eyes" will roll as you move your cursor.  This confirms you have it. 

It is an option in the installer - so if it does not appear you may have to go back and look inside the installer package to find and install it...
