Important question here: What's your shell? If you're using FreeBSD's standard dialog shell, the C shell, export won't work because it's from sh or bash. > So I added to my .profile the following > DISPLAY=192.168.0.100:0 > export DISPLAY > Logged out and logged back in. > Alas no display variable > When i run xterm it tells me that there is not display variable. Make sure you're using bash (see your shell setting from the chsh command or echo $SHELL). If you're using the C shell, you can use the setenv command instead. % setenv DISPLAY 192.168.0.100:0 % xterm See the advice regarding xhost in order to have the correct permissions to run the applications from the desired X server. -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
