open a shell and enable graphics display for the superuser
type xhost +
I enter it and it says, access control disabled, clients can connect from any host
next, instructions say, become super user, enter su -
I enter su - and never get the prompt for password.
next says Set the DISPLAY variable to point to your machine
enter: export DISPLAY=your_machine_name:0.0
then it says, start the setup script. enter ./setup
I do this and it says No such file or directory.
I start all this from the directory the file's in, but then it takes me to linux:~ # as soon as I hit the su - command.
yeah, sorry, I'm really new to linux and just trying to learn a few things.
how do you execute a .sh file? it's a shell script, right?
