Display on Linux

Hi,
How can I get CDE(HP-UX) displayed on Linux machine(RH 7.1 with gnome). I can get the X display by exporting the DISPLAY value and xhost but the initial CDE login screen I can't.

TIA

Hi Vikas
You mean you want CDE display on your Linux workstation? you can use xemulatar like exceed. and get that. I would not do it though. because if you bring CDE on linux you can't use linux. But as you says if you bring back x windows to linux you can use unix and linux both.

In exceed communication-mode use XDMCP-query or XDMCP-???? (i don't excetly remember).

Re: Display on Linux

if I'm not wrong, exceed is for windows systems.But I want to get CDE on Linux.This Linux machine is going to work as the display screen for HP-UX so the access to linux functionality is not very important.

Re: Display on Linux

You need to buy a commercial package - CDE for Linux.
For example try :
http://www.midnightdreary.com/Documents/Linuxhowto/commercial-howto.html#ss19.5

Exceed is only emulation for Windows environment. It can't give you CDE if you don't have it on the server.

Re: Display on Linux

On the Linux client change the xdm configuration to
use either broadcast or your HP-UX host as the chooser
option. You can then have the HP-UX host provide the
CDE desktop for you.

If you are just using Linux as an X-terminal for HP-UX
then you shouldn't need to install CDE on Linux.

Re: Display on Linux

If you want to use both CDE from hpux displayed on linux, and gnome
on linux at the same time, try VNC at

www.uk.research.att.com/vnc

It is free (GPL), very simple to install, and very interesting.

Re: Display on Linux

Hi,

If you have dtlogin running on a HP-UX server, and you want to have a CDE session on your Linux workstation (even simultaneously w/ your KDE/Gnome session) you would start the command:

X -query :1

where :1 is the display on which your CDE session will run. This way, you have 2 X-sessions at the same time, and you can switch between them by pressing Ctrl-Alt-F7 and Ctrl-Alt-F8 (this is on my portable, it might vary, so you try a bit).

When you want to start an X app on your CDE session, use the display :1 , and for your gnome/KDE session, use :0

Good luck,
Rik
