> XQuartz does not replace the system X11 on Snow Leopard, so you can go back to the Apple-provided X11.app rather easily. Just launch X11.app rather than XQuartz.app to get the older server. If you want to make Apple’s X11.app the default server (owning the launchd $DISPLAY socket), then you should disable the org.macosforge.xquartz.startx.plist as described in the first question. After logging out and back in, Apple’s X11.app will be default. If you still want to remove XQuartz.app from your system, you can do that with these two steps:
> launchctl unload /Library/LaunchAgents/org.macosforge.xquartz.startx.plist
> sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.macosforge.xquartz.privileged_startx.plist
> sudo rm -rf /opt/X11* /Library/Launch*/org.macosforge.xquartz.* /Applications/Utilities/XQuartz.app /etc/*paths.d/*XQuartz
> sudo pkgutil --forget org.macosforge.xquartz.pkg
Yes, that is correct.
