Chapter 26. The X Window System > X11-Based Applications and Libraries

26.5. X11-Based Applications and Libraries

You can use Fink to install many X11-based applications, such as the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP), xfig/transfig, ImageMagick, nedit, and many others.

For example, because the text editor nedit depends on Motif libraries, Fink will first install lesstif. (This also gives you the Motif window manager, mwm.) Similarly, when you install the GIMP via Fink, you will also install the packages for GNOME, GTK+, and glib because Fink handles any package dependencies you might encounter.

You can also use Fink (see Chapter 27) to install libraries directly. For example, the following command can install the X11-based Qt libraries:
