Java setting DISPLAY when logging in

Hi guys;

When I use xwindows and login to my solaris box i have to set the display. I know there is a way to set that in the profile so that i don't have to set it everytime i log in and it is automatically done. any ideas!

Thanks

Thanks for the info...I use ksh...Do you put your IP address in the .login file. I dont want to hard code the IP though!.

No, you should not need your IP address in there... for ksh, I think you can simply declare:
...
DISPLAY="dtterm"
...
export DISPLAY


If that doesn't work, you can use setenv instead.

Oh yeah, change "dtterm" to whatever you need, of course.

Remember run the ". .profile" (ksh) or "source .login" command after you edit .profile or .login file.
