Xstartup for VNC under AIX
Posted on 2010-09-13
Current version running is AIX 6100-04-05-1015 on an IBM P550
I had the vnc server configured to run plain old CDE and then one of my developers discovered a problem with Firefox (for AIX 6.1) where he'd load the program but would then be presented with a message that cairo could not display the requested format.
Thinking it was related to CDE pretty much sucking as a gui, he requested that I install either Gnome or KDE as a desktop gui and since I know this particular developer to never be one to request something without having researched it to DEATH before making any requests so I went ahead and installed Gnome.
Now, when I added the "gnome &" (I did comment our the line calling for CDE) all I get is the dreaded grey screen with no term window.
Any deas on how to resolve this would be appreciated.
