Hi List. Thanks to Carl R. & Sunanda for your tips. Gave them a go, but still no further progress. I'll define what I have done, maybe something will stand out. My install is RedHat 9.0 with Gnome GUI. Via Command Line, (as Root) # mkdir /rebol ... next # mv -v view-pro042.tar.gz /rebol ... went OK, next # cd /rebol , then # gunzip view-pro042.tar.gz ... went OK, next # tar -vxf view-pro042.tar ... went OK, next # ls # feedback.r licence.html rebol setup.html view- pro042.tar ... next # ./rebol ... and I get the following result: ** User Error: REBOL: Cannot connect to X server. ** Near: size: size-text self all [ para para/origin size: size + para/origin para/margin size: size + para/margin ] ** Press enter to quit If I completely remove the /rebol dir and it's contents and do the same procedure as above, I get the same result. The X server works, because if I type # startx ... my sytem boots into the Gnome Desktop P.S. I am new to Rebol and Linux Thanks, Ben

Hi Ben, On Thursday, October 30, 2003, 10:59:08 AM, you wrote: BM> # startx ... my sytem boots into the Gnome Desktop You have to do the above inside a terminal window from X, i.e. in gterm or xterm. Otherwise, you'll have to set up the DISPLAY environment variable correctly, at least.

The problem is that /View does start on current X environment. $ export DISPLAY=xxx.xxx.xxx.:0.0 et voila ;-) Regards, Norman. -- Conversation/lunch: "How do you Eat your Rebol in the Morning?"

Eh? Does that mean you can start view without starting X windows first? And can you then open windows, show faces etc? Anton.

Hello Anton, No, X needs to be running (I requested this 3 months ago by rebol, got no reply thought...) In my opinion /view does not has to have an X running, it only needs the Libs of X to get started. I needed the /view PRO features but then discovered that /view is unable to run without X, that made my purchage of PRO useless. I use /view a lot via telnet, NON GUI (prefs.r edited and DISPLAY set and X running on that machine) thats the only way i can use the /view PRO features without the use of GUI options.
