I upgraded my box from RH 9 to Fedora Core 1. From day 1, i'm unable to receive winpopup messages(net sends). The line i've put in my smb.conf is
message command = echo "message from %f on %m to %t : " > /tmp/mesg ; cat %s >> /tmp/mesg; env DISPLAY=127.0.0.1:0.0 xmessage -nearmouse -file /tmp/mesg ; rm -f %s;
the message is coming till /tmp/mesg but i'm not getting a popup. 'xmessage' is working fine...what the hell could be wrong?
Also, I'm unable to turn on messaging with 'mesg y'...whenever i try mesg y, i get an error,
mesg: error: tty device is not owned by group `tty'
When i log in as root and change the owner group for /dev/pts/tty*, it works fine...
Any help is appreciated.
