    Unix Display feature

    Hi all

    OS=UNIX (Sun Solaris 5.8) DB=Oracle 8.1.7

    I am trying to run netasst GUI on my oracle installation. I have set my display env to the IP address of my box with the following error:

    # DISPLAY=10.1.6.12:0.0 is not an identifier.

    Is there another identifier I am not using?

    I will appreciate your comments.

    Depending on you shell. You need to either

    SET DISPLAY=10.1.6.12:0.0
    export DISPLAY

    or

    export DISPLAY=10.1.6.12:0.0

    I use the second option because the change happens imediately.

    what shell are you running in?

    if ksh do

    export DISPLAY=10.1.6.12:0.0

    if csh do

    setenv DISPLAY 10.1.6.12:0.0

    if bash do

    DISPLAY=10.1.6.12:0.0
    export DISPLAY

    You have probably set it incorrectly somewhere

    Thanks guys,

    The shell for my Oracle is Ksh while the root shell is csh. I have run both display types and still coming up with this error:

    $ set DISPLAY=10.6.1.10:0.0; export DISPLAY
    $ netasst
    Xlib: connection to "10.6.1.10:0.0" refused by server
    Xlib: Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 key
    java.lang.NullPointerException

    You're refusing connections
    "Xlib: connection to "10.6.1.10:0.0" refused by server"

    you need to allow connections via command:
    xhost +
    alapps

    Thanks all,

    I realized I wasn't logged in as Oracle. If I was logged in as Oracle, I won't require to set the DISPLAY. And the error I received was as a result of the "set" in front of the DISPLAY.
