Action "Dtterm" was not found

Hi guys,

I've an AIX 4.1.3 box, I know I know it's not an HP... But maybe you can help me!! When I log on this station on an Xwindow session (CDE) I got error messages when I try to run for exemple dtterm, dtfilehome, dtappmanager, etc... Error message look like that:

Action "Dtterm" was not found
Action "Dtappmgr" was not founr
Action "Dtfilehome" was not found

If you know such problem with CDE on HP-UX just tell me, maybe I can solve my AIX problem!!

Thanks a lot!!

Jonathan,

Check whether the dt deamons are running or not?. If not, then start all your dt deamons.

Thanks

Jonathan,

The full path of dtterm on an AIX machine is /usr/dt/bin/dtterm. Try the above full pathed command and see if it works.

Re: Action "Dtterm" was not found

login as root and see if it changes. It's possible that the actions (desktop icons I guess) are specific to one user.

It works for me (tm)

Re: Action "Dtterm" was not found

guys,

I've check all my daemons are running... The command /usr/dt/bin/dtterm works, I got this error when I click on icons... And even with root I got the same error...

Re: Action "Dtterm" was not found

and ~/.dt/ errorlog ?
what is your $PATH

ll ~/.dt/ too

the "shortcut" icons are defined in a file. (whereever the action was saved to) it's possibly deleted. Check the CDE file manager for it...

Re: Action "Dtterm" was not found

can you run /usr/dt/bin/dtaction Dtterm ?

please then check $HOME/.dt.errorlog or report any errors seen to standard out.

Are users $HOME's NFS mounted at all ?

other things to try ... add set -x in .dtprofile and check the DTDATABASESEARCHPATH espeically if you have a working AIX system see man dtaction for it's relevance.

Lastly has this ever worked and if so what changed ....

Re: Action "Dtterm" was not found

Hey guys, I found out what it was...

The /var filesystem was full, and when running "dt" commands, it tries to write in the /var/tmp directory...

I cleaned up /var and it works fine now!!

sorry for the inconvinient but when I did a "df -k" to see space, I forgot that df in AIX have an "%Inode Used" column and I check that one it was not full.. I mistaken it with the bdf column "%used" ....

My fault... sorry again, but thanks to answer me!! :)
