Description samer kanaan 2016-10-24 15:28:38 UTC
just after installing the update xquartz 2.7.10 IDL is quitting after launching quartz.
Comment 1 Jeremy Huddleston Sequoia 2016-10-24 16:33:46 UTC
There's nothing to go on here.  Why is it quitting?

Is it because it needs IGLX?  Did you enable that via:

    defaults write org.macosforge.xquartz.X11 enable_iglx -bool true
Comment 2 Tommi Koskinen 2016-11-10 21:27:02 UTC
I have the same problem.  Version 2.7.11 kills IDL when it launches X window, not in all cases though.  Only some programs suffer from this problem, such as cindex from Coyote's library.
Comment 3 Jeremy Huddleston Sequoia 2016-11-10 23:35:43 UTC
IIRC, IDL uses Motif, so you should use the Motif workaround:

    sudo mv /opt/X11/lib/libXt.6.dylib{,.bak}
    sudo cp /opt/X11/lib/{flat_namespace/,}libXt.6.dylib 

You should reach out to IDL and/or Motif to fix libXm.
