Open Office


When I tried to set up a printer for Open Office , by executing ./spadmin this is what I got:

>./spadmin
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

/usr/share/OpenOffice.org1.1.0/program/spadmin.bin X11 error: Can't open display: :0.0
Set DISPLAY environment variable, use -display option
or check permissions of your X-Server
(See "man X" resp. "man xhost" for details)

How do you ' check permissions of your X-Server' ???
TIA!

it seems that you are in a terminal running as su - (at least that is the message i get when i run with su -)

get out of root in terminal if u don't need to be root to run the command, other use plain su

also, in open office, do you really need to setup printers with a special command?
