Solaris 11 GUI is not working

Hello

I've installed Solaris 11 on Sparc T4-1,

I tried to launch IPS GUI:

Code:
# packagemanager
  /usr/lib/python2.6/vendor-packages/gtk-2.0/gtk/__init__.py:57: GtkWarning: could not open display
    warnings.warn(str(e), _gtk.Warning)
  Unable to initialize gtk
  could not open display



Same issue when I connect monitor or use ILOM redirection Solaris GUI doesn't appear too, I checked gdm and it looks fine:

Code:
# svcs gdm
  STATE          STIME    FMRI
  online         17:13:44 svc:/application/graphical-login/gdm:default


I'm wondering if additional drivers are needed to let display work or is there missing packages Smilie

Hi,

Looks like your DISPLAY variable is not set, what happens when you type;

Code:
echo $DISPLAY

What are you running locally to display the GUI

Regards

Hello,

Yes you're right:
Code:
# echo $DISPLAY

#

Would you please advise me for the proper value.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi,

The DISPLAY variable should be set to your IP Address and the server port that you want to use. So if your PC or Xterm was 123.123.123.123 then the DISPLAY variable would normally be 123.123.123.123:0.0

You need to know your IP Address and what the local xdisplay is expecting.

What are you running on the PC to display the GUI

Regards

Dave

I connected a monitor directly to server with no luck, I tried from my PC to use ILOM redirection and it has the same issue too.

Best Regards

Hello,

What I mean, when I connect a monitor there will be only the command line interface, the GUI is not working.

Best Regards

Hi,

I think that it may be worth your time having a look;

Code:
man xhost
man xterm

However for your local connection you should be able to start it wth;

Code:
svcadm enable gdm2-login

Regards

Thanks,

Actually I don't have such service on my Solaris:

Code:
# svcadm enable gdm2-login
svcadm: Pattern 'gdm2-login' doesn't match any instances
#
# svcs gdm2-login
svcs: Pattern 'gdm2-login' doesn't match any instances
STATE          STIME    FMRI
#

Regards
Sam
