My Mac Info
  • DAIMI TeX installation on Mac OS X 10.2
  • X11
    • Got X11 for Mac OS X (Public Beta 3).
    • Changed focus behaviour to no-click-to-focus by executing: defaults write wm_ffm true in an xterm or terminal (see the associated X11 FAQ). The needs to be restarted for the change to take effect.
    • Created my own ~/.xinitrc by copying the standard /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc (see FAQ) and adding the two lines:
      xmodmap -e 'pointer = 1 3 2 4 5'
      xhost +harald +gorm +jubilee
      right before the quartz windows manager is started with exec quartz-wm. The former line to switch the middle and the right mouse button (so middle will paste) and the latter line to allow various machines to display X11 applications on my mac.
    • Disabled key equivalents under X11 in the Preferences (Input tab) so that Command modifier can be used as Meta modifier in X11 applications (emacs in particular).
    • 2. Install Developer tools. The Developer tools may not be included in the OSX attached to a system. OSX full package and upgrade package include a CD-ROM of the Developer tools. Developer.mpkg is the installer. Apple Developer homepage has free download service of the Developer Tools for registered users.
