In order to set the printer setting for openoffice.org-2.0.2 I have to, as far as I know, run the program /usr/local/openoffice.org-2.0.2/program/spadmin as root. (The default settings are for lp and I am using cups.) It's a series of dialogs in windows and so I've tried to set the display. I get a "no protocol specified" error.
bsd# setenv DISPLAY ":0.0" bsd# /usr/local/openoffice.org-2.0.2/program/spadmin Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server Xlib: No protocol specified I18N: Operating system doesn't support locale "en_US" Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server Xlib: No protocol specified /usr/local/openoffice.org-2.0.2/program/spadmin.bin X11 error: Can't open display: :0.0 Set DISPLAY environment variable, use -display option or check permissions of your X-Server (See "man X" resp. "man xhost" for details) I looked at the xhost page and tried: bsd# xhost +root Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server Xlib: No protocol specified The same thing happened with xhost +. What am I missing? Oliver PS Using sudo does not work as for some reason when I try to run spadmin with sudo, spadmin can't find libraries it needs that are in its own folder. su-ing gets the same result as running as root, and deleting ~/.openoffice.org-2.0.2 and running spadmin as a normal user changes nothing -- apparently nothing printer-related is in there. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
