[Xfig hangs on start]

fig is an X11 application, and thuis requires an X11 server to be installed to work. Do you have one installed ? If you are not sure run

sudo port install xorg-server 

and follow the instructions at the end to log out and back in again, and then retry running xfig.

But when I try to launch it from the terminal it hangs. Nothing happens. Would you please help me to find the problem? I tried to “clean" the port and install it again, but it didn’t help. Thank you and have a good day ahead!
