Xquartz App

Posted : admin On 1/26/2022

Currently, XQuartz is needed to run inkscape on the Mac. There may be a native Mac client whenever inkscape v1.0 is released. Another thing to keep in mind is that you will need to have Apple's command-line tools for Xcode (compiler) installed, or Xcode itself in order that the package manager can actually build inkscape for you.

What Is Xquartz


Get the Quartz app for the latest business news in the global economy, from our reporters around the world. From XQuartz's faq: Uninstall (Snow Leopard or Later) XQuartz does not replace the system X11 on Snow Leopard, so you can go back to the Apple-provided X11.app rather easily. Just launch X11.app rather than XQuartz.app to get the older server.

DownloadXQuartz-2.7.7.dmg,and open it in macOS’s Installer.
