I tried to connect to remote server ,which is installed Centos 5.4 x86, through Xmanager on windows 7, and got this error.
/usr/bin/xterm Xt error: Can't open display: %s
At the remote server, I turned on firewall and after this I got the above-mentioned error message. I do this accrding to instruction on remote server.
2. Firewall (TCP/UDP Ports) Configuration Open UDP port 177 from the PC to the remote host direction. Open incoming TCP ports 6000~6010 from the remote host to your PC. After adding these ports "/etc/sysconfig/iptable" as the enoder mentioned, /etc/init.d/iptables restart
3. Reboot the remote host and start Xmanager <- I could not restart remote server.
If I do setenv DISPLAY other_machine:0 and launch a gui application I can send this application to my other_machine Is there any mean (utility or whatever) to send an OPEN application to another machine (by its pid eventually) So if I have an nedit open, and its pid is 13245, I could do something like send_to_display pid=13245 machine=other_machine:0
I am running hummingbird exceed on Workstation with an ip address of a.b.c.d, and connecting to a sun machine with IP address x.y.z.w running Solaris with XDMCP. From the sun machine, we commonly telnet to other sun and linux machines and run X applications.
We have just installed ubuntu 10.04, and I can telnet into that machine no problem.
However, running xterm on the ubuntu machine fails:
Start xpdf or gv. Click an xterm to be active and slide it over xpdf/gv. Vertical lines from xpdf/gv under the xterm stick to the xterm window above and make it unreadable.
The problem does NOT show with KDE default settings with display effects on but does show in fvwm, xfce etc, and in KDE without effects.
On a system with a Sandy Bridge integrated graphics (i5-2400) the problem went away by downgrading to xf86-video-intel-2.13.0. But it was not enough for another system with 945G which needed downgrading to xf86-video-intel-2.12.0.
on OpenSuse 11.3 installed first KDE Desktop but my desktop Pentium 4 2.2Ghz is really slow... with XFCE work perfectly but XTerm is very poor. Cut and Paste text selection don't wok, like Mouse selection and font.
Since this morning, I'm having a problem which symptoms are similar to this one : Cannot Login, KDE won't start - OpenSUSE 11.3, but it affects only one user.Everything was fine yesterday, but now, everytime this one user tries to start his KDE session, the screen goes black for a few seconds before coming back to the login screen.
I tried the following :
- I installed LXDE and tried to log in : same problem
- I tried to log in Xterm : no problem
- I created a new user and tried to log in : no problem, be it KDE or LXDE
- I cleared /tmp : same problem. My /home partition is 98% full but still has 2-3GB available. The / partition is 45% full with 28GB left.
From what I've gathered so far, it seems the problem is user-specific, graphical session-sepcific, but not desktop-specific (since both KDE and freshly installed LXDE fail in the same way)... and now I don't know what else to try.
Just had a weird problem in konsole at the command line. Some of my keys are not recognized as if they are not being pushed. They work fine in other applications and work fine if I push the Shift key with it and capitalize the letter. Some of the keys are the c, g, r, w, 3, 8,and 9. C, G, R, W, #, *, and ( all work so I do not believe it is hardware as I am using this computer to type this message. It is just at the command line. I don't know what I did to make this happen or how to fix it. I am using openSUSE 11.3 with the KDE 4.4.4 release 3. I tried reinstalling xterm and konsole from yast but it did not fix it.
I have the following problem with xterm on vnc on opensuse 11.4. I start a vncserver, and then inside that session I start xterm. However, if the xterm emits a beep/bel/ascii 7 then the sound comes out on the machine on which the *server* is running. Every other installation I've used has the sound come out on the viewer end (which is what you'd expect and want).
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.
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).
I have a normal computer installed (F14, 32 bits) with a sound card correctly installed. In a normal configuration into runlevel 5, I can play sound and the sound card is visible from the gnome-volume-control window. I should modify the computer running a naked X server (without window manager and other stuff) and two applications (an xterm and a special application managing sounds). The last application is a text based application and could run on a text console. I have the X server running because I display picture sent from another computer. Currently the computer boots on runlevel 3 and logs in automatically. If I start manually my special application, it runs fine. I create a .xinitrc script with the xterm command and I change the .bashrc calling xinit. Each application runs well independently. My problem is when I try running my special sound application from the xterm window. I have no sound. If a run the gnome-volume-control command, the program shows that no sound card is available.
I suppose the X server removes the original sound configuration of the text mode during its initialization and could not initialize correctly after that the sound card.
how it is possible to initialize the sound card manually into the X server? Do I need running some gnome command before I can call my application?
I am running Fedora 14 and have run into a new problem. If I do either "su -" and enter password, or, "sudo su -" the terminal stops. I put a set -x in roots .bashrc and nothing. Login from a vt works and loging in as root from gdm produces nothing.
I recently upgraded from xubuntu 9.04 to 11.04, and it seems xterm is either incorrectly configured for the new desktop or not working right. After a bit of typing, xterm stops refreshing, and only the first few chars or words are shown until I manually refresh xterm (then, whatever I'd written shows up correctly).
Steps to reproduce 1. Open xterm, basic command prompt shows up 2. Type "hello, this is a test", xterm only shows "hello, th" 3. Press 'ctrl-l' or click outside the xterm window, xterm updates with full "hello, this is a test"
Already tried dpkg-reconfigure with no success.
Attached is the output from "appres XTerm" and "infocmp"
I had this error when installing and running a vncserver before, which I have now removed. However, the xterm's seem to remain in the system and are regenerating themselves. Should the pid IDs stay the same each time I run this?
I want to run some parts of a script in different terminals. I already found about subshell, () using parenthesis to group commands and using xterm -e (function), problem is I cannot get pid for the function running in the other terminal. And if I use & to set the job in background the terminal goes away as soon as it ends the job. I am using log files, and then send it them using built in mail. After all the parts finish I have to run the "main" script which needs the data from all the pieces. Also other question, i usually use bash, but to load a tool i need csh, the tool is not mine so i can not change the csh usage. There is anyway of passing bash scripts/commands at the moment of changing/invoking to csh shell in the same console?
When you guys su or su -l in a X terminal as another user and/or root, do your user get a ~/.xauthXXXXXX with the magic cookie of the display owner, which allows him/her to start a GUI application? ... or is that just me? If not, under which environment (KDE, Gnome, etc) and how do you start X then?
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:
for uri in $NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_SELECTED_URIS; do gnomesu -c "gnome-open '$uri'" done
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.
I have been with opensuse from 10, and I currently run 11.3 on my desktops. My attempt to install 11.4 failed. It produced a display with many tiny rectangles instead of a gui. I guess there is a discrepancy between the times produced by the x and the y display drivers and the times expected by the display hardware. I can't blame it on the display hardware, though, because I switched to another monitor and got the same error. I did the usual tests from the install screen, and there are no errors. If I run the program in fail-safe mode, the display is text only. In this case there is no x-server. I have not observed that in 11.3 fail-safe.
The usual operations in starting the xterm app don't seem to apply in Fedora 12. I usually prefer to put my own title and other attributes when starting an xterm. But the operation: xterm -T 'Some Title' does not do anything. Instead, the current directory is always displayed in the title bar of the window (on kde). Where is the resource file to disable this default behavior?
On FC14, launching xterm gives log:[b16394@udp158975uds ~]$ xterm Warning: Cannot convert string "nil2" to type FontStructxterm: cannot load font -misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--13-120-75-75-c-60-iso10646-1
