Description jbphillips 2017-05-02 20:35:56 UTC

I am trying to launch xQuartz because the libraries are dependencies of Inkscape. Unfortunately, it's not launching and when I pointed Inkscape at the xQuartz app in my Applications/Utilities it will now just launch but not bring up anything on the screen.

I'm running 10.12.4 (Sierra) and trying to figure out what version or way I need to run this to get it to work.

We've tried the 2.7.11 and 2.7.8 to no avail.

Any advice or how to get this to run would be great. (Nothing is blocking the binary)
