XMMS is not loading, error message inside.


Quote:
bash-2.05b$ xmms
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: No protocol specified


** CRITICAL **: Unable to open display
I do not understand how it can not open, I do have the X-Window Server up an running. Anyone know what it wrong?

How do you run it? You should start X, open a terminal and run it. It won't work from text mode consoles, even if X server's running.

you have a default bash prompt so i'd guess that somehow you've damaged your bach config files? if you're running the app as root when logged in as a normal user you will need to open the server up to allow foreign users to use the display. run "xhost +localhost"

Hmm, I was not in the CLI. I had Fluxbox open, and I openned up a terminal emulator (RXVT).

Anyway, rebooting seemed to have fixed the problem.

Acid: That how it is in RXVT automatically (bash prompt). That is how it came out of the box in Slackware 9.

And I got a different software problem now. Actually it is with a game I like to play every now and again.

UT2003.

I can not seem to control my player around, it's like someone blocked the keys out.

But if I play in root, I don't get this problem. I am thinking that it is a permissions issue
