BSD [Solved] Problem With "xhost +" command-FreeBSD

Does anyone no why "xhost +" would not be working in freebsd? Could it be to do with a certain xorg package not being installed etc..
I am getting error "xhost: command not found"

Thanks Anyone

This can have several reasons: maybe your PATH variable is not set to include where the xhost -binaries resides (if memory serves correctly /usr/bin/xhost per default), maybe the "execute-flag was (accidentally) removed from the binary, maybe the binary was moved to some other location (i.e. /usr/X11R6/bin ) or maybe it is simply not installed.

In case it is not installed at all you might want to know this link:

xhost 1.0.4 for FreeBSD download

I hope this helps.

BSD SOLVED

Thanks for that.
I installed it with pkg_add & its now fine.
the link you gave came up very dodgy.I use an extension called "wot" & it gave the site my browser went to a poor rep So I did not enter it to have a look.
Thanks anyway as I did not know xhost was a seperate on its own pkg which is one of the reasons I was put out.
