XQuartz stopped working after having worked fine for a long time. I checked some obvious things like my $PATH to see if something stepped on it but didn't find any discernible difference from what I had previously.
$ echo $PATH /usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/libexec:/usr/X11/bin:/usr/local/opt/python/libexec/bin:/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.4/bin
So, after looking at what seems like a million suggestions I uninstalled with the commands listed at: https://gist.github.com/pwnsdx/d127873e24cef159d4d603accaf37ee4
After reinstalling with XQuartz-2.7.11.dmg I try launching XQuartz.app by right clicking it in a finder window but it doesn't launch. The only indication of a problem I can see is when launching the XQuartz.app I get the following:
$ tail -f /private/var/log/system.log | grep xquartz Jan 5 17:26:33 bos-mpx3u com.apple.xpc.launchd >(org.macosforge.xquartz.X11.24980): Service exited with abnormal code: 126
So, I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling XQuartz-2.7.9.dmg, reinstalling XQuartz-2.7.11.dmg and even reinstalling via $ brew cask install xquartz but I always get the same results.
Version: 2.7.11 (xserver-1.18.4)
