I suspect the issue here has to do with the /usr/X11 or /usr/X11R6 symlinks. Those can be deleted by the OS on an upgrade, and that's an OS bug, not something that XQuartz can fix. That being said, those symlinks are transitional aides. You should do whatever you can in your product to stop relying on them as they are not guaranteed to be around forever. What need to you still have for them? Users don't need to do a full reinstall to deal with this issue. All they need to do is restore those symlinks (which they can do by running `sudo /usr/libexec/x11-select /opt/X11` --Jeremy > > Brian > > _______________________________________________ > Do not post admin requests to the list.
