I am currently using xandros (trying to make the Linux learning curve as painless as possible!!), and i know that its a debian based distro so i thought id try apt-get from the console,
apt-get update (and this seemed to work)
then i did,
apt-get insatll synaptic (this too seemed to work)
but when i tried synaptic to run it, i get an error saying,
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified
im assuming that the config is missing and the IP address for apt, ???
but if this is the case then how the bloody hell did the update and install synaptic ters work in the first place,
Anyone got any help out there????
