    when i launch either inkscape or gimp, the app will launch, then x11 will launch, and then nothing will come up... anyone know how to fix this?:confused:

    I have seen inkscape to really wait.. and wait... and wait.. (could be minutes sometimes!! :eek: ) before actually launching its GUI in X11.
    .... and this is on a Quad!

    So, seriously, just quit all apps.... launch inkscape... make sure X11 is running.. then get some coffee.
    The don't spit out the coffee once you've seen the interface... :rolleyes:
