Gimp for OSX problem?
I recently upgraded to Snow Leopard after the latest update to X11 required it. Now whenever I launch gimp, I can't do any work. Why? All the text/letters are replaced with boxes or squares. I've restarted my computer, uninstalled and reinstalled (both gimp and X11), but I still haven't been able to solve my problem. I've provided images below to help describe my problem.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

I would say you have a rpboelm with your fonts in X11. Do you run other X11 apps and do they work?

Nope. Gimp is the only x11 app I use. In fact I don't even know of any other apps that use x11.

Is there a way to fix the fonts in x11?

RE: Gimp for OSX problem?
Well, after checking things Gimp doesn't use the X11 font support. It uses GTK and FontConfig. From what I see on my Linux, that means a ~/.fonts.conf file, a ~/.fonts directory (with some user fonts) and a /usr/share/fonts directory with most fonts. But I can't help luch more than that.
