xdm failure to run a newly installed program
After installing a new program like "nvu" as root, I cannot run nvu, either as root or as a user, even though the application is installed under /usr/local/bin with group assignment as staff and rwe permissions. I cannot run it even as root, let alone a user. the following is the error message.
*** loading the extensions datasource
*** ExtensionManager:_updateManifests: no access privileges to application directory, skipping.
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: XDM authorization key matches an existing client!
(nvu-bin:2784): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:
Is there another standard procedure to install thord party application other than assigning to rwe permissions to a staff group, to which all users belong.
Tx for any suggestions.
