Application initialization failed: this isn't a Tk applicationcouldn't


I get this error message when I want to run some of my software in linux.

Application initialization failed: this isn't a Tk applicationcouldn't connect to display "localhost.localdomain:59535

I can run xclock and wish with no problems, but somehow it doesn't allow my software to run tk.



I was thinking somehow it might be related to my xserver. When I do startx OR Xorf -configure, I get

xauth: file $HOMEi/.serverauth.5225 does not exist

Fatal server error:
Server is already active for display 0
If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock
and start again.

Any ideas? Thanks.

X authorizes a process to use the display using xauth. Normally, when you log in you have permission so that anything that you run can use the X server. In your case something is wrong with this process.

You are posting in Fedora, so are you running the default Fedora 16 install?

Are you logging in as a normal non-root user?
Is gnome running?

Do Ctrl-Alt-F2 to bring up a console window, log in and do:
Code:
ls -l .Xauthority
-rw------- 1 you you 462 Dec  4 09:44 /home/you/.Xauthority
should give something like the above.
