Can't Open Xconsole???

Can't Open Xconsole???

Post by Mike Ha » Fri, 05 Aug 1994 00:39:20

I try to open my xconsole so I can see talk requests etc when I am
running olvwm.  I get a can't open console error message in the little
console window.  I am using a 1.0.8 version.  Thanks!



1. xconsole 'Couldn't open console'


 I hope somebody can give me a pointer to a how to or something for xconsole.
 Trying to start xconsole I invariably get the message ? Couldn't open console
 ?. This happens also when I try to start it as root (/dev/console is rw for
 root only). The DISPLAY variable is set to ':0.0', and all error/printf
 messagesd from my programs appear on the console, as I can see when switching
 back with ctrl+alt+F1.

 What is it that I haven't understood here ?
 Thanks for your tips .
