Hi,

Export your display setting to your ip-address.
# who am i -uH
# export DISPLAY=your_ip_address:0.0

You also need an xserve runing on your client machine, if you don't have one, xming is and excellentt open source option for windows.

The xserver must be installed in your client pc, there a may xserver clients for windows. check on your pc if you have one installed. If you have it installed, fire it up , export the display terminal as the previous post told you, and then lauch mozilla.

Re: Error Opening Mozilla

Hello,

are you connected locally via the server's graphic card or remotely through XDMCP ? You have to be using an xterm to start mozilla from the command line.

In case you are connected on a local display console, set your DISPLAY variable as follows:

#export DISPLAY=server_ip_address:0.0

In case you are connected remotely, set it to be your PC address where your X server is running:

#export DISPLAY=PC_ip_address:0.0

then, start mozilla:

#/opt/mozilla/mozilla &
