I am having a bit of trouble with my X-setup. For one thing, when I open
another xterm or aixterm, my environment doesn't get exported...this means
all my environment variables have to be reset (ly my path). Is there
a way to get the aixterm to read the current environment or even .profile?
(I'm using the korn shell).
Another problem is that I can't just type "info" or "smit" to get these
programs to run. I get an error that says cannot open display or check
permissions on X server. Even if I set DISPLAY=whatever:0 and export it,
I still get the same error. However, if I type "info -display whatever:0"
it works.... The display variable is set... echo gives back the correct
display and "info -display $DISPLAY" works. So what on earth is the problem?
The other problem is I wind up with a bunch of <defunct> processes when
exiting the login window. Xdm is the parent of these processes, and I
believe that only the login window winds up leaving a defunct process behind.
Any help greatly appreciated.
On another note, if anyone has Viewsonic 7 or the Mag 17 inch monitors
working in 1280x1024 with x-station 120 or 130, please let me know. Thanks.
