    Default Re: Failure of "Konsole" thru' 'No protocol specified'

    This evening, for reasons unrelated to this thread, I downloaded the Tumbleweed Rescue CD. And then I booted it up.

    I wanted to open an "xterm", but there was no "xterm" in the menu. So I opened a terminal (XFCE terminal), and I typed
    Code:
    ( xterm & )
    at the command line.

    I got a message "No protocol specified", which is what connects with this thread. However, the "xterm" opened just fine, so apparently that message did not cause an issue.

    Remembering back, there was a time when I was getting a similar message on my Tumbleweed computer, whenever I opened an "xterm". It did not cause problems, but was annoying. But then the message went away. However, it is back there with the Rescue CD.

    nrickert - Back again! Took a bit if time but have set up Konsole which is now running fine. Tried "gparted" thru' the GUI with zero results so followed your ex [in Konsole & thru' localhost:~ # ( gparted & )] and

    localhost:~ # Unit boot.mount does not exist, proceeding anyway.
    Unit sysroot.mount does not exist, proceeding anyway.
    Unit usr-share.mount does not exist, proceeding anyway.
    Unit usr.mount does not exist, proceeding anyway.
    Unit var.mount does not exist, proceeding anyway.
    No protocol specified
    ======================
    libparted : 3.2
    ======================

    , lo & behold, "gparted" is now running sweetly on my desktop!

    Well, I don't quite know what, but it seems we've both learned something.

    Back in the day, I upgraded from 6.3 to 7.0 (or it may have been 7.0 to 7.1) whichever, it was pretty disasterous and I moved from SuSE to Mandrake for a while.

    I'm beginning to like Tumbleweed but I think it's only fair to expect some of these anomalies from time to time.

    I'm extremely grateful for your help!

    I'm glad you have that back working.

    Yes, I agree.

    Yes, that's a reasonable assessment.
