XSTM

No matter which stm I run all I get is the text based version. I can't get the GUI to start. Is there a configuration file somewhere that needs to be changed or something that needs to be done or to be running to get the GUI?

Re: XSTM

Yes, I exported my display and it still doesn't start the GUI.

Re: XSTM

I found on the Options menu a "Map" selection. In the "Map" selection there's a selection to "Display xstm Device Map in Text Format". This selection is checked. If I uncheck it or restore the defaults and say Okay, it doesn't keep the changes I made. How do I get the don't display in text format change to stick?

Re: XSTM

Can you give some more details of what you see?

What is the revision of OnlineDiags (shown when you start STM)?

Do you see the same when you run cstm and mstm, or is there a difference between those two? Which is getting started when you run 'xstm'? Is it command line based cstm or the menu-based mstm?

Are there any errors logged in the UI Activity Log (see under the File menu)?

The option you found in xstm for text display is for how the map is displayed, it will still be displayed in an X window, not the terminal screen you are starting STM from. (It's intended partly to make it easier to manage a large number of devices, as the text display is more compact that the graphical one).

Re: XSTM

Hi,
Do you get any error after you type xstm.
Have you tried starting any other application from xterm say.. sam does it display GUI or TUI only ?
Have you given xhost + on the server ?
