I wasn't successful last time I tried, but that was with (I think) Ubuntu 12.04. The video card in my PowerMac doesn't work with X11 on newer Linux versions, so I haven't been that motivated to get it working. (Especially when I can boot into OS X and use TenFourFox.)

X11 works pretty well now. I am running Debian with LXDE on my PowerMac G4 and my iBook G4 and Gentoo with LXQT on my G5. My PowerBook G4 is running OpenBSD with XFCE.

What kind of video card do you have? Mine is some sort of nvidia if I remember correctly.

I have a Radeon 9600. All my PPC machines have Radeon Cards. The Nvidia ones have been known to cause issues under Linux.
