error starting kate.
im getting this error whenever i start kate.
cm91:/etc/init.d # kate
kate: ERROR: KUniqueApplication: Can't determine DISPLAY. Aborting.
any idea what is causing this to happen and how can i avoid this?
Running X applicaltions on another users X server is not allowed (security issues). Not even root is allowed to, that is why you get the error. Try starting kate from a users command line with 'kdesu kate' or run 'xhost +' as user and then try again as root. A third option is to use ssh: 'ssh -X -l root localhost'
great the first option worked: kdesu kate.
