The two most important settings are PATH and DISPLAY. You'll need to add :/usr/X11R6/bin to your PATH variable, and will need to create a new shell variable, DISPLAY, and set it to :0.0


In bash, you'd do this:


export PATH=/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/Users/username:/usr/X11R6/bin


export DISPLAY=:0.0


If you're using tcsh, you'd do:


set PATH=/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/Users/username:/usr/X11R6/bin


DISPLAY=:0.0


Be sure to replace username in the above examples with your own username.


Now, after launching X11, you should be able to run commands from the Terminal window instead.


Good luck.
