Divya answerd "yes" to this Q off-list.


There is your problem. Run it as a user, provided there IS an X-server
up and well. In that case you better use an X-terminal instead of a
console. I don't know if by "terminal" you mean a console or an X-
If there is no X-server than you need to install one.
You are using the VGA output, aren't you?

Further: To maintain a readable flow of Q-A-Q-A please don't top-post
when the reply you get is posted below your post. Also please reply to
list so everybody can follow the discussion. In some cases a personal
reply off-list is appropriate but use it with discretion.

Kind regards and I wish you success
