export DISPLAY


Hi guys, when i do a export, it shows :

[root@fc4 ~]# export
declare -x DISPLAY="localhost:10.0"
declare -x G_BROKEN_FILENAMES="1"
declare -x HISTSIZE="1000"
declare -x HOME="/root"
declare -x HOSTNAME="fc4.hsh"
declare -x INPUTRC="/etc/inputrc"
declare -x KDEDIR="/usr"
declare -x LANG="en_US.UTF-8"


then I do a export DISPLAY=192.168.1.102:0.0

if I do a export, the change will be reflected.

But if i logout and login again, the display will change back to the old one.

How do I make the change permanent?

Thanks.

I put it in /etc/bash.bashrc.local but you could also put it in $HOME/.bashrc.

You can leave the IP address out. I define DISPLAY like this.
Code:
export DISPLAY=":0.0"

One way is to add the EXPORT to your ~/.bashrc (or equivalent), so it's run every time you login (or start a shell).
