Any idea of how to set the env display in Tru64 to that of the local machine

Re: Set environment display

sh or ksh
DISPLAY=0:0 ; export DISPLAY

csh
sentenv DISPLAY 0:0

one can also use localhost:0 instead of 0:0

Make sure the owner of the display has set
"xhost +" to disable access control.

Re: Set environment display

To clarify, "xhost +" allows anyone to connect to your display. If you'd prefer to allow only yourself:

xhost +`uname -n`

xhost +localhost

If your environment already allows everyone to connect (to find out: xhost), you can "xhost -" to disallow everyone who wasn't explicitly allowed to access your display.

Do:

man xhost

to read more about the command.

Re: Set environment display

using .0 without a hostname leads to a faster output because shared memory will be used instead of the network layer.
