- can't find xterm on mac os x

used to be in applications, utilities but now there is only a term and
now xterm applicaton.. When I try to install from the Mac site, it
says I cannot install because I already have a newer version
installed. Any suggestions on this??
Re: can't find xterm on mac os x
xterm should NEVER be in /Applications. It's in a relatively common
location for X11 tools, /usr/X11R6/bin/xterm.
The X11 window server, on the other hand, should be installed on your
system as /Applications/Utilities/X11.app. If it doesn't live there,
make sure that the X11 system is installed. From a terminal window
(including Terminal.app) on the affected Mac OS X system ...
$ ls -ld /Library/Receipts/X11User.pkg
You should see something like this:
drwxrwxr-x 3 root admin 102 Jan 2 15:17 /Library/Receipts/X11User.pkg
If you see "No such file or directory", the X11 package is probably not
installed, or some doofus removed the receipts package for it.
