Hi Everyone,

I installed Firefox browser on Ubuntu instance. But when I start by typing "firefox" on the command line, it says: Error: Display not specified I also did: export DISPLAY=0:0 xhost + But it still gives error: Cant open display 0:0

I would appreciate if someone can help me how to solve this problem.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Hamid. What kind of desktops and VNCServer did you install? What is your vnc config?

Hello Farzad,

Actually, after reaching the console through Openstack dashboard, and after installing and running eclipse. I can create a Java project on eclipse. But when I try to edit the Java source file, the keyboard does not responde. Mouse clicks are also not responding.

Hi Farzad,

I am also not familiar with VNCServer and its config. Kindly help me if that VNCServer needs adjustment and how to do it..

Thanks Hamid Sultan
