X11 Xquartz MAC OS 10.8.5
In my new MAC OS 10.8.5 MacBook Pro I followed the instructions given by Apple and installed the Xquartz application. I do see and I can work in my X11 windows when I call XQuartz. However old programs like LyX (latex), GS (GhostScript) and Nedit (Text editor) do not work and claim that X11 is not installed. Any ideas?

bash: /usr/local/bin/nedit: Bad CPU type in executable
Do your DISPLAY and PATH environment variables look o.k. in the terminal?
Something like this...
$ echo $DISPLAY /tmp/launch-RoRaK0/org.macosforge.xquartz:0 $ echo $PATH /usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/opt/X11/bin
This might determine if this is a display or execution environment issue.
In the case of Lyx did you get your Lyx dmg from lyx.org and follow the information here:
E.g. follow the instruction about Gatekeeper on Mountain Lion and the part about needing a TeX installation.
Or did you compile a pure X windows Lyx from source?
I'm guessing the later. Did you use Homebrew or Macports, or some other method?
Back to Nedit... can you post the specific error messages?

The following worked for me on Mountain Lion.
1. Open the URL: http://ftp.nl.freebsd.org/editors/NE...5/executables/
2. Download the file containing the intel version of nedit: nedit-5.5-MacOSX-intel.tar.gz
3. Start XQuartz and open a terminal (xterm).
4. In the xterm window open the nedit archive:
tar xvzf ~/Downloads/nedit-5.5-MacOSX-intel.tar.gz x nedit-5.5-Darwin-i386/ x nedit-5.5-Darwin-i386/COPYRIGHT x nedit-5.5-Darwin-i386/faq.txt x nedit-5.5-Darwin-i386/nc x nedit-5.5-Darwin-i386/nc.man x nedit-5.5-Darwin-i386/nedit x nedit-5.5-Darwin-i386/nedit.doc x nedit-5.5-Darwin-i386/nedit.html x nedit-5.5-Darwin-i386/nedit.man x nedit-5.5-Darwin-i386/README x nedit-5.5-Darwin-i386/ReleaseNotes
sudo cp -p nedit-5.5-Darwin-i386/nedit /usr/local/bin/
Does this work for you? If not, which step fails?

Following/understanding some of your propositions and according to personal experience, I realized that there was something wrong with my Xtools. Than I downloaded and installed the new Xcode version from Apple (Version 5.0 (5A1413)) and I updated the "command line tools" using the download components within Xcode peferences.
Than, I download and installed again XQuatz.
After that everything was fine.
All programs using X11 work in my computer.
My conclusion: when I migrated the contents of my old Mac (10.6.8) to the new one (10.8.5) some features did worked well but some not. So, Xtools are not 100% compatible among different MacOs versions.
Thank you all.
