Installation

Xquartz for mac

Our software library provides a free download of XQuartz 2.7.11 for Mac. The file size of the latest installer available is 75.9 MB. This free Mac app is a product of org.macosforge. XQuartz for Mac belongs to System Tools. Our antivirus scan shows that this Mac download is clean. I have the newest Mac running 10.13.3 and XQuartz is not working well at all. The X11 window that opens up during a session often becomes inactive even when I am typing in it. The resolution of the windows (like emacs) is very poor compared to the resolution of my LG monitor and I have not been able to get this adjusted.

DownloadXQuartz-2.2.0.1.pkg,and open it in macOS’s Installer.

Changes in 2.2.0.1

Maceverinsight
  • All changes in 2.2.0 plus:
    • Updated /usr/X11/lib/X11/xinit/privileged_startx.d/10-tmpdirs to address a potential security risk (privilege escalation):
      • A user could create a symbolic link from /tmp/.X11-unix to /usr/X11/lib/X11/xinit/privileged_startx.d and execute privileged_startx to give himself write permission to /usr/X11/lib/X11/xinit/privileged_startx.d
