I am having a strange problem trying to have an xconsole window
working under my own login. I use a .xsession file to set up
certain windows and apps I like to have available when I log in.
Seems that because I have this .xsession file in there, I cannot
get an xconsole window to work. The window comes up, but in the
window is the message "Couldn't open console". If I remove the
.xsession file, the xconsole comes up fine. Here is the important
stuff from the .xsession file:
xconsole -g 490x200-20-50 &
Has anyone else encountered and solved this problem? A kind reader of
this group suggested I might need to define and export the DISPLAY
variable in my .bashrc, which I plan to try ASAP. Any other ideas
