Yeah, I made it on OS X using the Terminal, DigitalColor Meter and PixelMator. Would be the same as using Terminator, Gpick, and Gimp. OS X doesn't honor Xresources like Linux/BSD, so I had to copy and paste all the values to a text file, lol. That's because it's not running an X server by default.
Yeah, X or XQuartz should I say was borked on Mavericks last I checked. Probably working now. It's kind of counterproductive to run XQuartz and a WM on OS X though. I mean everything else is running in NeXtStep cocoa whatever and separate. X in a Linux or BSD VM runs sometimes faster than bare metal responsiveness wise. I usually go that route.
