Angry oracle forms error frm-91111

I am having trouble getting forms 6i to work. When I try to run it, I get a frm-91111 error: window system startup failure.

I am using RH 9. I have Oracle 9i installed. I also have DS 9i installed; however, I do not like the way the web forms look, so I am now trying to get D2K 6i to work. I get the error when I try to run f60desm.

I have tried setting DISPLAY as localhost:0.0 (I am trying to use my system as both the client and server - hey, I'm just a poor student!) and simply :0.0 and neither solves the problem. I also tried to xhost +localhost and this makes no difference.

I have tried setting both ORA_NLS33 and ORA_NLS to $ORACLE_HOME/ocommon/nls/admin/data. I have NLS_LANG set to american_america.WE8ISO8859P1.

The only possible leads I could find was something about making sure there are no more than 256 colors set (I have no idea how to check/change anything like this). There was also something about a bug id 1413894 on However, you need some kind of support id to use this site, which I'm sure costs a lot of $$$.

can you even get X to start, if so DISPLAY :0.0 is not your problem,

also don't forget that when initializing a variable for the shell, export it.

export DISPLAY

X starts up fine. I am even able to bring up, which is the Oracle DS9i version of the forms designer. I just can't get the D2K6i version of forms to work. It is an older version, and probably uses an older version of motif, but I imagine it is backward compatible. I'm stuck.

I have experienced the same problem and did the following:
1) Installed the openmotif21 rpm
2) Edited $ORACLE_HOME/forms60/lib/ to change the line
to read
This forces forms60 to use the old motif 2.1 shared library instead of
3) Relinked with
cd $ORACLE_HOME/forms60/lib; make -f install
This got rid of FRM-91111 for me.
