X Server on Solaris 10?

Posted on 2010-09-10

I have a Solaris 10 (x86)  server. How can I verify that X server has started?

Some background info. When I installed Solaris, it asked me which Desktop environment to use. I selected Java Desktop System for Solaris 10. So when I login, that what I see.

Thanks.

I think you are confused. There are two x servers available in Solaris 10, Xorg and Xsun. There are also two window managers available, CDE and JDS. Which x server you use usually depends on the hardware frame buffer you have installed, while which window manager you use can be chosen by the user at the login screen.

To see which xserver is in use, simply run

ps -ef | grep X

and see which is displayed.

Thanks blu. I get this (see code snippet) when I run that command. Does this mean I'm running X server?

# ps -ef | grep X
    root   814   799   5 10:28:17 ?           0:53 /usr/X11/bin/Xorg :0 -depth 2 4 -nobanner -auth /var/dt/A:0-3ra4Jb
noaccess   911     1   0 10:28:37 ?          64:46 /usr/java/bin/java -server -X mx128m -XX:+UseParallelGC -XX:ParallelGCThreads=4
    root   923   850   0 10:45:26 ?           0:00 /bin/ksh /usr/dt/bin/Xsession
    root  1020  1002   0 10:45:30 pts/2       0:00 /bin/ksh /usr/dt/config/Xsess ion2.jds
    root  1645  1644   0 15:37:21 pts/3       0:00 grep X

From that output I would say that you are running the Xorg x server with the
GNOME/JDS session/window manager.
