    Gui debian wheezy


    Dear,

    I have installed a debian wheezy and updated the kernel to 3.2.23.
    This os comes without any gui and i would like to keep it so. The intention is to only start 1 graphical program made with glade and python.

    I tried (in my eyes) almost everything and I'm getting a little bit frustrated here. A little test program works when i start it from inside the terminial in a gui but not from the main terminal (before startx).

    Anyone an id?
    With kind regards,
    Baeseke

    Hello Baeseke,

    Any graphical program that is to run requires the system to be running X windows manager or KDM or GDM or other windows manager to work.
    I hope this info is of help.

    perhaps installing a minimal X server? I mean something like:
    Code:
    apt-get install xserver-xorg-core xorg xterm
    and then - startx - and run you app from that environment with xterm

    I think Slim is not so bloated, it could help as well

    Good Luck!
