Forum: X and Fluxbox
started by: zakiakhmad
Posted by zakiakhmad on Aug. 04 2007,11:16Hello All,
I am using DSL to login with XDMCP to another Linux server. I have succeed login with RDesktop to Windows server. Also I have succeed login with VNC Viewer to another Linux Server.
But I haven't succeed login with XDMCP. Anybody can help me? Is it my problem that I face has a correlation between the Window Manager that I use? Of course I use Fluxbox and JWM Window Manager.
Are there any application that I need to login to XDMCP computer? Thank you for your attention.
Posted by curaga on Aug. 04 2007,16:57Can you log to that Linux XDMCP server from other distros? To check the server is working..
For the client, ie DSL, you need nothing more, just boot text mode and access the server with "Xvesa -query ser.ver.ip.address", also add the option for resolution, color depth and refresh rate.
Posted by zakiakhmad on Aug. 05 2007,07:26Hi curaga, thanks for your reply. I have succeed connected from other distros to my server. The process is really simple. Because I am using Ubuntu, I log to server using GDM (GNOME Desktop Manager).
Choose Options -> XDMCP Login from GDM.
I've tried your suggestion. But it doesn't work.
Xvesa -query ipserver
Nothing happens. The result, is other option available from the Xvesa command.
Posted by curaga on Aug. 05 2007,07:37I meant you to replace ip.ser.ver with the ip address of the server, duh!
Like Xvesa -query 192.168.0.40
if the ip of the server is 192.168.0.40
Posted by zakiakhmad on Aug. 05 2007,07:58Yap, I understand to replace ipserver with my own IP server. But, it still not work.
I try other command
# X -query ipserver
X: unable to open wrapper config file /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config
X: /tmp/.X11-unix has suspicious mode (not 1777) or is not a directory, aborting
Any more idea? Thanks!
Posted by curaga on Aug. 05 2007,08:08You didn't get any messages from Xvesa -query?
'cause that should work..
You could also try "Xvesa -broadcast" to make it call any comp around
Posted by zakiakhmad on Aug. 05 2007,08:16The message after I type
# Xvesa -query
# Xvesa -broadcast
is just the same. Option from Xvesa command
-bs disable any bacing store support
-c turns off key-click
Posted by curaga on Aug. 05 2007,10:01well, does it list query or broadcast? Or maybe it lists the options, 'cause you didn't add the resolution option..
Posted by zakiakhmad on Aug. 05 2007,10:37Both of them, have the same result. How do I add the resolution options?
Is this true?
# Xvesa -query -screen 1024x800 192.168.0.1
Curaga, have you succesfully execute XDMCP from DSL computer? Would you share it with me
Posted by curaga on Aug. 05 2007,11:06no, I haven't
That command would be "Xvesa -screen 1024x800x24 -query 192.168.0.1"
Posted by zakiakhmad on Aug. 05 2007,11:28Still not work :-( I though you already try it. May we continue on my new topic?
I have made new topic
Posted by ^thehatsrule^ on Aug. 05 2007,17:24New topic here: < http://damnsmalllinux.org/cgi-bin....t=18863 >
However, I'll answer here since it does not have to do with display managers...
Did you try a full x server? If you wish to still try with kdrive/tinyx you should check if any newer versions have that capability.
Posted by zakiakhmad on Aug. 30 2007,08:12What do you mean by kdrive/tinyx? Is it the name of application? Where I can find it?
Posted by ^thehatsrule^ on Aug. 31 2007,04:56They are the "lite" xserver versions, of which DSL by default includes the xvesa and xf86dev (4.3.0?) servers. Please use a web search for more info if needed. Whitesparrow indicated in your newer topic that the included xvesa could not use xdmcp.
