After downloading the X11 package from http://xquartz.macosforge.org/
did you open the DMG and then run the package installer that was inside.
After it is installed you will need to reboot your system to make sure
X11 is properly installed.

On OS/X Yosemite (10.10.x) you will need to download the Yosemite
version of GNUbg from the site (Other versions will not run on
Yosemite). The downloads can be found here:


In particular you want the 1.04.000 release for 10.10.x Yosemite. The
direct link to that file is here:


You need to open up the DMG file above and then you MUST copy the GNUbg
application to the /Applications folder. It will not run from anywhere
else. If you don't copy it to /Applications it will never work (This is
part of the README file inside the DMG file).

Once you have properly copied it to /Applications then launch the GNUbg
from /Applications and then wait 3-4 minutes the first time it is run.
OS/X needs to resolve some things with the GNUbg application so the
first time it is loaded it will load slow.

Let me know how you make out.
