xconsole couldn't open

Post by Gerhard Frens » Sat, 23 Jul 1994 04:36:42



Hi,

I'm running linux with XFree86. Most of the things work fine but whenever I
run xconsole it opens a window with the message couldn't open console.

Has somebody some clues?

Thanks

1. xconsole 'Couldn't open console'

Hi,

 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 .

 Armand
