Download Source Package xfree86:
The libX11 library, also known as "Xlib", provides a means of communicating with an X server via the X protocol.
Xlib provides low-level functionality, dealing mostly with the wire protocol and in terms of basic operations such as opening and closing the connection to the X server, creating graphics contexts, drawing graphics primitives such as lines, arcs, and glyphs, handling events, and so forth. A set of dynamically-loadable internationalization modules is also part of this package, though not in the libX11 shared object itself.
Application programmers who are new to the X Window System will likely find one of the many "Toolkit" libraries far more convenient to program against than Xlib directly. Examples of popular toolkit libraries are GTK+, Qt, XForms, LessTif, and Athena.
libx11-6 depends on xlibs-data for locale data and the X error and keysym databases.
