Unable to run gparted.

Post in this forum for problems at boot time, if there was no problem for burning the disc. For example can't find the CD, or strange errors when you press enter at the very first prompt.

Unable to run gparted.

Post by b.moore44 » 10 Jul 2007, 18:40

I'm having some problems running the newest version of the rescue cd on a Dell Optiplex 745. I get this error message every time.

GTK-WARNING ** : cannot open display:

Any thoughts?

Maybe you should try to run GParted from the graphical mode (type startx)

That seemed to work. Thanks for the quick reply.

Does this have anything to do with the frame buffer?

The framebuffer was required for QtParted, it is not required anymore
