I'm trying to figure out how to install Inkscape. I tried to follow the
instructions, but I am really confused. I think that I installed XCode,
agreed to the  Xcode license in Terminal, and Install MacPorts for my
version of the Mac OS (macOS Mojave v10.14). On this page
<> it says that there's an
optional step: "The X11 windowing environment for ports that depend on the
functionality it provides to run. You have multiple choices for an X11
server". I tried to install the xorg-server port from MacPorts
(recommended), however I couldn't figure out how to do this? I got to this
page <> but there's no
Download or Install button?

How do I install X11 and then ultimately install Inkscape? I just want to
edit a vector and this is all very confusing.

Thanks in advance for your help.
