OpenSUSE :: Opensuse 11.4/gnome - Most Gui Apps Not Working With Gtk Error - Cannot Open Display: ::1:1.0

Jun 22, 2011

I recently installed opensuse 11.4 on a remote server. It has GNOME installed as a desktop. The problem I am experiencing is that when logged in through VNC, most of the GUI apps are not functioning, especially ones that require root privs. Example: The Add/Create users context does not function. After you supply root pw, nothing happens. If you launch it from a terminal, you see this:

jjmuw@g01:~> xdg-su -c /sbin/yast2 users
Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display "::1:1.0".
No protocol specified
No protocol specified


(y2base:4872): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: ::1:1.0

Followed by a hang. This is also affecting things like the Xen configuration contexts (creating/managing VMs).

OpenSUSE :: 11.4 Gnome 2.3 Display - CRTC Error That The Display Is Over The Maximum - 1920x1920

Apr 16, 2011

I have a fresh install of OpenSUSE 11.4 64bit and I have installed the AMD Display drivers for my Radeon HD 5970. Everything seems to be working quite well. I have a multiple monitor setup (1280x1024 monitor and a 1920x1080 monitor).

I have my primary display set to 1920x1080, however when I try to enable the second display, I get a CRTC error that the display is over the maximum (1920x1920). If I enable both monitors at lower resolutions, there is no problem.

I have done a fair bit of reading and have been unable to determine where this maximum is set, or how to change it. I'd like to be able to run both monitors at their native resolutions.

OpenSUSE :: SSH / X11 On 11.3 - Error: Can't Open Display: Localhost:10.0

Sep 25, 2010

I was trying to remotely log in to my desktop which uses 11.3 from my laptop via ssh. For some reason I get an empty field for the command echo $DISPLAY. and as a result an xclock command results in error: can't open display. I tried to set it to localhost:10.0 and I get: Error: Can't open display: localhost:10.0

I've tried :0.0 and I get: Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 keyError: Can't open display: :0.0 ssh used to work about a week ago before I performed various security updates. I was wondering what' the solution to this. I checked the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file and ssh_config file both have X11 forwarding on. Can anyone with more experience out there give me any ideas?

OpenSUSE :: Gnome Minimised Apps

Dec 25, 2010


I'm using Gnome 2.3 under 11.3 x64.

Whenever I minimise an app, it disapperas from the taskbar. I've fixed it by installing the window selector; however, it only works for apps running in my main monitor. Anything on the external monitor doesn't show.

How do I fix this?

And a Merry Christmas to all!

OpenSUSE Hardware :: No Sound In Some Gnome Apps?

OpenSUSE :: Root Trying To Open Flashplayer In KDE Getting Cannot Open Display

Feb 18, 2011

We have a digital signage appliance built on SUSE 11.3 with a LAMP server that uses the flashplayer application to play a .swf file from localhost. It is a AOpen GP7A mini pc that has the nVidia drivers loaded. We have lots of customers that have been running the exact same system for over 6 months (we image the drive for each sale).

For some reason, my last customer is seeing the following problem shown below, and this linux configuration is way over my head. Everything else is working (local LAMP server is working, communicating with our production servers to get information works, etc). I have verified that it is screen 0 that is running (at least it shows with Ctrl-Alt-F7). I thought that it may have occurred because of updating the software with zypper up. I had the customer rebuild from the image being careful not to upgrade the software. The result was the same. The pc is a newer version compared to my bench pc, but there are multiple other customers running that same version just fine. So I am not sure if it is

The command is issued by a php script that is run in a root cron job. As I said, it works great on all other customer pc's including my bench system. I also tried to execute the command on a ssh terminal as the root user with the same result. I also upgraded my bench pc and it still worked properly.

The command being executed is sudo env DISPLAY=:0 XAUTHORITY=/home/svision/.Xauthority flashplayer http://localhost/flash/sign.swf &

the result (when run in terminal) is: No protocol specified (flashplayer:15077): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0

OpenSUSE :: How To Get IPod Touch Apps Working

May 3, 2010

I just recently installed openSUSE 11.2 (KDE desktop). Like some others, I'm having trouble getting apps working with my iPod Touch. So far, I've tried two apps: amarok and gtkpod. Neither one seems to detect my iPod. When I connect the iPod to my computer, I get a popup indicating that some type of camera has been connected. Also, when I look at dmesg's output, I see stuff related to the iPod (Apple info) and no errors as far as I can tell. But I don't see any device file for it (either under /dev or /media).

OpenSUSE :: Gtk-WARNING **: Cannot Open Display: :0

May 29, 2011

For example, the gparted application menu item doesn't work; using it means that there is almost no filesystem support. The only way to get it to work is to open a terminal, run 'su -', and then open it from there.As another example, I tried creating a nautilus script to open files as root with a command like this:


gnomesu -c "gnome-open '$uri'"

When I try using it, it just fails. Typing out the command in the terminal gives this (tested on a text file):


No protocol specified
(gedit:13672): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0

I'm pretty sure the problem is that it's granting privileges, but not using the full root environment, or something along those lines.

OpenSUSE :: Zypper Error While Attempting To Install Apps

Jan 5, 2011

OpenSUSE 11.3
Zypper 1.4.8-0.2.4 (i586)

When attempting to run commands of zypper:

$ sudo zypper install <XXX>
$ sudo zypper help
$ sudo zypper services


I looked through my command history to verify I hadn't done anything stupid. The only thing I had done since my last zypper command was to install ngspice....WITH zypper.

Looks to me like is corrupt.

Is there a way I can "update" or reinstall with an uncorrupted version without bricking my OS? I looked into uninstalling from Yast Software Manager (GUI) but it throws all kinds of warnings about how it can't complete operations and it will break links and I'd like to avoid it unless a guru says otherwise.

OpenSUSE :: Using Gedit As Root: Gtk-WARNING **: Cannot Open Display

Jan 23, 2011

I've been searching for a permanent solution for some time now, but the threads containing the same error message never seem to be about the same issue.I want to:I'm not trying anything fancy, all I want to do is open a write-protected file with gedit as root, like so:


# sudo gedit /usr/bin/deadbeef

..but every time I try, no matter the file, I get this error message:


(gedit: [process #] ): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display

I already know: I can circumvent this by going:


# xhost +local:root
# sudo su

General :: X11 Forwarding - Error: Can't Open Display: <ip Of Display>

Jun 28, 2011

I have the following scenario that doesn't seem to work normally. I have a windows 7 pc from which I am using putty to connect to my other linux servers (all running redhat 5 and 6). So here is the scenario that works and one that does not work. And I'm trying to figure out the one that does not work. Scenario that works:

From windows 7 (putty) I ssh into Linux_Server_1.

I run xclock and I see it pop up on my windows 7 pc. I am using xming on windows 7 to help me populate the display from linux to windows. One that does not work:

From windows 7 (putty) I ssh into Linux_Server_1. Then from Linux_Server_1 I ssh into Linux_Server_2.
<no output>

I try to setup $DISPLAY with localhost:10.0 or 0.0 or even my windows 7 pc ip address:0.0 ....etc Then when I try to run xclock I doesn't work.

I get these error messages: Error: Can't open display: <ip of display>

Also as a side note all our Linux servers are sitting on one subnet. My pc is sitting on another subnet. I use vpn to connect to the subnet where the servers sit from my pc.

I'd like to solve a little problem that I have connecting my notebook with an external VGA monitor.Everything seems to work fine, but when I close the laptop monitor, also the external monitor shuts down.I've tried to find different energy-saving setting for laptop display and external monitor. with no luck...My video card is an ATI Radeon Xpress 200M. On the ATI website there is no catalist control center for linux. (It would be very useful). So, for now, I can only use the display options on the panel.

OpenSUSE :: Open Kde Or Gnome Desktop In A X Server?

Apr 27, 2011

What I try is to execute Linux programs from Windows. What I do:

- I run an X Sever in Windows (Xmin).
- I connect to Linux server using putty.
- Stablish DISPLAY to Windows X Server.
- Run Linux application.

Really, what I do for simplifying the work is create, in a shared folder, Windows direct access to do this work. Ex: I create a link called "tora - Run Oracle Administration Tool.lnk".

When users want to run Tora in Windows, they don't have to install it. Just press the link and it runs a .cmd which does the previous operations. So users can run konsole, LibreOffice, tora, ... and all Linux programs as if they where installed in Windows Clients. And as the Linux and Windows computers are joined to Active Directory, each users access has its own configuration for each program.

Thus, they can try this programs without having to install them.

So as I can run all Linux programs... Why not allowing to run a remote desktop (I know I can do it with Vnc, Xrdp, NX, ...) If user run "konsole", a Linux konsole is open in Windows client. And then he can open X programs (I don't create links for all Linux programs, so the can run the konsole link and run any program). After displaying konsole, if I type "konqueror", konqueror is opened in Windows client.

If type kdesktop, desktop of kde is open, but the menu bar, tool bar doesn't appear...

Here is an image: [URL]

I detail it:

- My client is a Windows 7.
- Open a konsole in a remote linux (titled shell-konsole)
- Run kdesktop command.
- A new window titled "KDE Desktop" is opened.

But no menu or application bar is opened. An it doesn't takes my configuration (my configuration is Spanish).

How can I add menu and application bar to that desktop?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 Screen Display Not Working Any More ?

Apr 22, 2011

I recently upgraded to suse11.4 and everything worked fine for a few months. Suddenly after logging in (GUI - LXDE desktop) the background screen is all what I can see and no menus, not even right click opens anything. Same in KDE desktop. All I can do is throw myself out with Ctrl Alt and F1. startx returns that the server is already running. All I can do is using (as root) "rm -rf /tmp/X0-lock" and then "startx --:1". That opens the GUI but only as root. What can I do that I can log in normally again? By the way I tried to reinstall but I only get to loading drivers and then everything stops.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Cloning Display Not Working On Laptop?

May 31, 2010

I am having trouble getting my Dell M6400 laptop display to be cloned with the Hyundai LCD display I have connected to my docking station.

I have an Nvidia Quadro FX 2700M graphics card and have installed the proprietary driver according to SDB:NVIDIA drivers - openSUSE. I have tried using sax2 (found out today it is depreciated so will stop that) and running nvidia-xconfig from both init 3 and init 5 followed by nvidia-settings to setup cloning mode.

When I run nvidia-settings, it doesn't detect the laptop display it seems. It says the max resolution is 640x480 even though the max is 1920x1200 and this does get used if I boot the laptop without a monitor attached.

Also, when I try and select cloning nvidia-settings crashes with a segmentation fault.

openSUSE 11.2.

OpenSUSE :: Display - Desktop Appearance And Theme Settings Not Working

Aug 14, 2011

I've been trying to get familiar with this over the past 24 hours or so. I assume I've been somewhat successful in what I'm attempting to do, as I can work my way around a bit now and use some terminal commands. However, there is this display problem I seem to be encountering with certain windows which is extremely putting off. When I click options like 'File' or 'Edit' in a window, this is what I get. Here are the screenshots below.

This is what I get when I click the 'Volume' button in the Panel at the bottom of the screen. I have tried changing the Desktop Appearance Settings, Theme Settings but nothing seems to work. Although this is not a performance issue, it is hampering my vision of the various available options, and I would like to resolve it at once.
