problem running Eclipse 2.1 on mandrake 9.2


Hi,

If I run eclipse using my nurien account , I get the following error :

[nurien@licence-appserver nurien]$ eclipse&
[1] 4574
[nurien@licence-appserver nurien]$ Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

Error: Couldn't find per display information
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified

Error: Can't open display: :0.0

[1]+ Exit 1 eclipse

However if I run it as root, it will work!

I would be very grateful for help (I am new to linux)


Thanks a lot in advance

Hi,

Finally I found a fix :

As root , you have to run the following command which allows to allow access to the X server for every user:
xhost +


Then eclipse graphical interface can be launched using local account.

It is also needed to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to the Eclipse installation path to avoid some warning messages
