View Full Version : [gnome] user 2 can't start xclock

May 30th, 2009, 12:27 AM
Hi there,

I use jaunty (ubuntu 9.04) with gnome.

all users can work with gnome's menu and application fine, but only user 1 seems to have a propper x-environment. only user 1 can run xclock from terminal-window.

I'm nor a UNIX-guru nor a X-freak, I just want to use the graphical environment on a local machine.
I start looking for basic KnowHow of x-server, xhost and all that stuff, but I don't like to become a x-developer, just to become able to use standard x-environment on a Linux-PC.

somebody can point me to some easy basic settings to make a user able to use x-environment ?

thanks in advance, laode
