    Hi Experts,

    How to set display variable on solaris, Am trying to install oracle on the solaris server connecting through telnet. I tried the following steps but problem not resolved

    # DISPLAY="`who -m | cut -f2 -d'(' | cut -f1 -d')'`:0.0"
    # export DISPLAY
    # echo $DISPLAY
    # xhost +
    xhost: not found
    # xclock
    xclock: not found

    Please get me out from this problem

    Thanks in advance

    I do not think the problem is with setting DISPLAY but with the PATH... message implies that xhost command can't be found.

    If I remember it right xhost should be located at /usr/openwin/bin - please double-check - then be sure such path is part of your PATH.
