Sol 2.7 - CDE: some CDE apps won't start
Posted on 2003-03-11
I've installed solaris 2.7 (using the web start install method), patched with Sun's recommended patch set. Everyting seems to be working fine, with the exception that non-root users logged into the console can't use certain CDE applications, for instance sdtperfmeter and "this host". The .dt/errorlog complains that the dtspcd process has halted, but dtspcd isn't installed. I've probably missed a package install somewhere but can't figure out which one I missed, or how to install it without reconfiguring the whole server again. The documentation I've found says this daemon should be installed automatically with the desktop.
So, my questions, in decreasing order of importance:
1. How can I fix the problem of non-root users not being able to start those CDE apps
2. What install option would have caused me to miss this package?
3. What package is dtspcd in, and how can I install it?
