X terminal


I have a Oracle version of Linux( http://www.oracle.com/technologies/linux/index.html)

Its Redhat Linux packaged by Oracle.

I need to get the X windows login prompt to the server I just installed through which I can administer the server in a GUI manner.

When I try to access it remotely from a x windows client then I get a grey ( black ) screen and thats it. Though at one time I was able to open the xclock application but I have not been able to open it now. But I would like access more than just xclock , I want the whole GUI env for that server.

Re: X terminal

Hi allanm,
If u want Remote GUI, u can install vnc viewer server and client.Thru X windows u won't get graphical control panel and application.hence you are getting only blank window with Clock.But this is possible if u had configured GNOME/KDE.
or
The best way, of my advice is as follows.
You have to Webmin and usermin For controlling Linux from remote thru Web application. This is the easiest way for installing and configuring...

Re: X terminal

Shalom,

This problem is commonly caused by incorrect permissions on the configuration files in the user home directory.

The user needs read permission on these files.

You should check the error log /var/log/messages on the local machine if it is linux and the linux server involved.

See that the xfs dameon is running and providing font services.

Test if the root user does any better.

My condolences on using Oracle's Linux distrution. I can't see they have added much other than graphics and a few kernel tweaks.
