X Window Display Initialization Failure

Hello all,

Im trying to “ssh -X” my university server for accessing cadence, but i get this:

*Warning* X Window Display Initialization Failure
*Warning* (DISPLAY "<not defined>")

Apparantly i need to assign it my machine IP e.g like:

 setenv DISPLAY  machine:0.0 

But unfortunately it still doesnt solve my problem. All it does is stop printing this warning message as a result…
Any clues… to circumvent this ?

no so fast! didn’t your university provide you with step-by-step
instructions how to access their cadence?

including an address, ID, password, and etc?

if it were my cadence running on my university network you wouldn’t be
able to “ssh -X” to anywhere, and go to work…

ask your university network administrator to give you a hand… :wink:

Well of course i access it like:


ssh -x mylogin@server.edu

and a password later on !!
Its as secure as yours would be :slight_smile:

Have u encountered this $Display variable error ?

so did you work out this problem ?
i am trying to access cadence through secureCRT and am getting the same error.
can you please help?

Hi, welcome here,

The output may be the same, but you’d better start a new thread, instead of reusing an old one. Be clear in choice of title, state your openSUSE version / desktop used etc, give as much info as you can.
