I run Exceed X session (XDMCP -indirect) from my Windows95 to login
OpenWindows of a Solaris x86 2.5.1. Each time I login, I always get an
error message like

{
Could not start docviewer.
Could not initialize canvas.
Could not create DPS context.

Is Adobe Display PostScript running?

See printed answer book documentation for further information.
}

Does anybody know how to configure my Exceed session to get rid of
this error?

Thanks,

Are docviewer and canvas called in your .profile (.login) files?

The error dialog box is appearing because your X server (Exceed) is not capable of displaying Display PostScript (DPS). Sun uses DPS in docviewer, answerbook and other documentation programs.

By default, when you first log into an OpenWindows desktop, docviewer starts and displays some Welcome information. If your X server can't render DPS, the error message occurs.

I was able to stop the error dialog from appearing by selecting "Save Workspace" on the root menu (middle/chord click on the background). This stops using the default workspace settings and uses the current ones (without docviewer, et.al.) instead.

You are able to use DPS-Programs (Docviewer etc.) if purchasing
Adobe DISPLAY POSTSCRIPT NX product.

This is a daemon running on ANY machine (Solaris etc.) which
renders the DPS-Request to PIXmaps and returning them to your
X-Server.
(See www.adobe.com)
