Right. I set the path required.
Whenever I attempt to run a program using X I get the error "Can't open display"
I have tried setting DISPLAY to the machine name but it does not work.
How can I set DISPLAY, or is there another problem.
You need to start the X server before you can run any X11 applications. The X server is named XDarwin and lives in /Applications. Double click on the XDarwin icon to start it. By default this is will give you a bunch of xterms and twm as your window manager. Note that if you are running Jaguar you will need to download the XFree86 220.127.116.11 update from http://sourceforge.net/projects/xonx. XFree86 18.104.22.168 is also available there and you should do this update as well after updating to 22.214.171.124.
