Run xclock application


Hi,

Im connecting from my local machine with 2 virtual servers with oracle Enterprise Linux.
Im using putty and I have configured Xming in my local machine.
One of the Linux server run the xclock application, but the another Linux server cant display it. The error message is:

-bash: xclock: command not found


I export the same variables TERM and DISPLAY in both Linux servers.

Regards!

On the other machine (the one that gives you the error message) what is the output of the command:
Code:
which xclock
Perhaps you haven't installed it on the other machine.

Hi,

the output is

# which xclock
/usr/bin/which: no xclock in (/usr/lib64/qt-3.3/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/root/bin)


The output for the server configurated correctly is]

# which xclock
/usr/bin/xclock


Both machines should have the same software but they are not clones... The server where xclock run bad perhaps has less packeges installed... I dont know what is the package necessary for xwindows...

Regards

On Debian it's found in the x11-apps package. I have no idea what it's called in Oracle Enterprise.
