FTP and XFCE


Hi I have 2 requests for help.

I am using Fedora Server 9 on a laptop and it hs a been setup as per the perfect server setuo on the fedora site.

I have yummed xfce but can someone let me know how to run it.

Secondly I can get to the homepage of the apache webserver from another laptop. But I have used filezilla to try and get ftp access using the root user and the root user password but it will not connect.

Any ideas?

startxfce4 is the command to start xfce4.

you definitely shouldn't ftp as root, it's a Very Bad Idea(TM). passwords in ftp are sent in plain text, for one thing. root is probably disabled for ftp anyway (as it should be). that's for a reason.

Thanks for your reply.

How do I setup a user for the ftp.

Ran startxcfe4 and got the following error msg - (
EE)Failed to load module "intel" (module does not exist,0)
EE)No Drivers available

Fatal server error:
no screens found
giving up.
xinit: Connection refused (errno 111): unable to connect to X server
xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.

Hopefully this will mean something to some one.

Thanks

Chris

Did you try to start xfce4 as root? That might at least explain the "unable to connect to X server" part. I have no experience with Fedora but there are distros that, by default, doesn't allow root to a graphic environment.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

Yes I did try to start it as root.

I will find out how to setup up a new user.
