gedit 7158


Hello all!

I recently installed Linux Ubuntu Server 9.04 32bit.

I've being trying to setup a FTP server.

I installed the vsftpd.

I want to open the .conf file so I can make a FTP user, so I can connect to a specified folder where my game server is installed.

When I try to open the folder with:
Code:
sudo gedit /etc/vsftpd.conf
I get:

(gedit:7158): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:


..
Best regards,
realchamp.

I believe gedit is a GUI style editor, but you probably aren't running XWin. Try one of the other suggestions above and/or vim.
You may find the 'vi' cmd is symlinked to actually run vim (Vi Improved).
