How exactly are you running it?  If you're not supplying the

Gtk which requires an X server.

I'm running it using the folowing:

I managed to start the Gimp server. I read that one of its new features
is that you don't need the X to run it. But, when I run an old Perl
script I got this warning:

Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:   at
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5/i386-linux-thread-multi/ line 264.

I think the Perl script needs a display, but this can be obtained only
by running X, which I shouldn't run.

Another question would be whether the old Perl scripts (written for 1.x
versions of Gimp) run on 2.2.

Hi all,

I have to run the Gimp server on a RH machine, but I don't have any clue
how it can be started. Where can I find some documentation on that? I
mention that the Gimp server will be accesed through a Perl interface.
