Q: How to display the Oracle on-line documentation viewer on a PC X-Terminal?

Post by Charles Che » Mon, 16 Dec 1996 04:00:00



Hi.  I have installed the Oracle on-line documentation viewer that came
with Oracle 7.3.2.x on a Sun SPARC 10 running Solaris 2.5.1.  The viewer
executable file, $ORACLE_HOME/orainst/oradocm, works fine on the SPARC
10.  However, I have no success so far in trying to invoke oradocm in a
X-Window session on a Micron P133 Intel PC running Hummingbird Exceed 5
and Windows NT 3.51.  On the PC with Exceed set to single-window mode, I
could establish a x-window session with the SPARC 10 using
/usr/openwin/bin/xterm.  Then within the session window, I would invoke
the OpenLook window manager by typing, /usr/openwin/bin/olwm &, at the
command line.  But, when oradocm was invoked, I was told that wrong
window system and or term type is used.  I have tried to set ORACLE_TERM
to xsun5 (x-term shell) instead of sun5 (command tool).  

I really would appreciate if anyone can respond to this problem
promptly.

                                                Sincerely,
                                                Charles Chen
