Connecting to another X running?
I'm trying to remake an old laptop to some sort of a imageviewer, and I
managed to get X running without a login required by running startx in
rc3.d/ . However, When I did that I could no longer show images on it
with qiv, I used the following commandline:
# qiv --display :0 -x testfile.jpg
Xlib: connection to ":0.0" refused by server
Xlib: Protocol not supported by server
Gdk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0
I assume it cant find the right display, but why? How can I make it
connect to the right display? Xatuh gives me
# xauth list
deblap/unix:0 MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 2668240a67bd76230766e9ba2ad7815f
deblap/unix:0 XDM-AUTHORIZATION-1 6a7887c71cdb9c1d00f1adf711023427
But I dont seem to get anything out of this either, is there some other
way to accomplish the same thing? Maybe another approach?
