Hi all,

  I downloaded Oracle 11gR1 for Linux, and when trying to install, get the error message:  'Could not execute auto check for the display colors using command /user/x11/r6/bin/xpdyinfo.  Check if the display variable is set.'  One answer I  found was that I should install the SUNWxwplt package.  OK, if this is what I have to do (is this correct?) , then how can I obtain it?  I've searched high and low and have no idea!  Thanks in advance!

You didn't mention what variant of Linux you are using. For RedHat family, xdpyinfo belongs to package xorg-x11-utils, you need to install this packages
into your system. SUNWxwplt is for Solaris only.

Fedora core, yes, it is Red Hat.  So, you're saying xorg-x11-utils will work?  This looks to be freely available for download on the Internet, if so.

It should work. Install the package:

yum install xorg-x11-utils

and try to install Oracle again.

OK, I think I installed the package (/usr/x11r6/bin/xdpyinfo is now in my file system, anyways), and I have set:
DISPLAY=0:0.0

but get the same error:  Could not execute auto check for display colors using command /usr/X11R6/bin/xdpyinfo.  Check if the DISPLAY variable is set.     Failed <<<<<<

And I can't proceed without a Java exception while using ':0.0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable.  I should mention that I'm physically at the machine.

I should also mention that when I entered yum install xorg-x11-utils as root, the terminal displayed:

Setting up Install Process
Setting up Repositories
Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: updates-released

Not sure if this is really an error, but worth mentioning.

Sorry, one more thing:  when I use 'xhost', I get:

Xlib: connection to :0.0 refused by server
Xlib: no protocol specified

OK, sorry, one more thing that is very pertinent:  I can issue xclock as root, but not as oracle.  If I try as oracle, it gives me the 'connection refused' message.  Maybe that will tell you what the problem is.

I was able to solve the permissions problem.  Your original answer put me on the right track.  Thanks!
