Please note that in some environments XQuartz 2.7.10 and later may cause a problem that EoD and some GUI apps cannot run. That problem can be avoided by either of the following workarounds.

  1. Use XQuartz 2.7.8
  2. In the terminal window on MacOSX, type the following command, then use XQuartz 2.7.10 and later
defaults write org.macosforge.xquartz.X11 enable_iglx -bool true
