    Post x11 server to display applets in terminal

    Hello, I am working with angstrom linux and trying to execute an java applet in the terminal, but the follow message is show when i try execute the applet:

    "Exception in thread "main" java.lang.InternalError: Can't connect to X11 window server using 'localhost:0.0' as the value of the DISPLAY vari."

    I installed xdm and tried other x11 packages, configured the environment variable DISPLAY=localhost:0.0 and the problem continues.

    how can I proceed to install and configure correctly a X11 server in linux to execute graphics in terminal?

    thanks in advanced.

    You are running the GUI, right?

    Hi alf55, I solved the problem yesterday, it was missing install xinit, xauth and other complementar libraries: glx, dri2, fbdev.
    and run xinit.

    now it is working well.
