So, I installed Firefox from ports, having made sure everything was bang
up to date. Evrything seemed to go perfectly well, but lo and behold,
first attempt to use it and I get this:
(firefox-bin:582): Gtk-Warning **: Cannot open display
I have searched for this problem and found plenty of references similar
error messages, but none of it seems to apply in my case. I am not
trying to run Firefox as root, I am not doing it from a remote terminal,
I am not standing in a bucket of water, I have the computer plugged in.
I think these are Good Things(tm), 'though I have been able to operate
a browser whilst standing in a bucket of water.
Q: Are you running an X display at the time this message is given,
or are you attempting to run Firefox from the console?
I THINK MAN INVENTED THE CAR by instinct.
