Did you really install all the needed and not abort the installation.
You should also have a /usr/X11R6 with a lot of stuff in it like and
xterm itself is /bin/xterm
and the program or script xyz will be found when its in your path.
And God said"Let there be light."But then the program crashed because he was trying to access the 'light' property of a NULL universe pointer.
