fpGUI doesn't have a native Cocoa or Carbon interface yet - one is
planned. But for years OSX came with everything that was needed to run
fpGUI based applications - XQuartz. So for years fpGUI based
applications just ran without problems. XQuartz is a Apple version of
the X server and came standard with OSX.
But as with everything Apple does (which is so G*d damn stupid), they
keep on reducing functionality and removing all the useful features from
the OS to dumb it down more and more - because all consumers are dumb
asses right. ;-) Anyway, so they removed XQuartz from the base install
of OSX. It is now a separate add-on that you need to install. I can't
remember in which exact OSX version they removed XQuartz though.
You can download XQuartz from the dedicated project website:
After that, your fpGUI based applications will run as normal again.
