Error in umui

Description

Hi,

when I type umui, I get the following:

"SimonDriscoll?@puma:~> X11 connection rejected because of wrong authentication.
Application initialization failed: couldn't connect to display "localhost:52.0"
Error in startup script: invalid command name "option"

while executing

"option add *foreground $colours(enabled_fg)"

(procedure "entry_appearance" line 19)
invoked from within

"entry_appearance"

(file "/home/umui/umui/ghui2.0/tcl/entry.tcl" line 52)

[1]+ Exit 1 umui"

I have had a similar x11 issue before, and one related to the .Xauthority file. I have tried (so far) things like "xauth -b quit" etc. that worked before, but haven't had any noticeable progress.

Could you recommend any ideas as to what to do?

Best wishes,

Simon

Hi Simon,

Are you logging into PUMA via another computer? If so, you need to use "ssh -Y" so that the DISPLAY environment variable is set.

Hi Willie,

thanks for the quick response. Yes. When I type:

ssh -Y SimonDriscoll?@puma.nerc.ac.uk

I get:

Hi Simon,

you are over quota on PUMA as you can see by the lines:

Disk quotas for user SimonDriscoll?? (uid 1343):

Filesystem blocks quota limit grace files quota limit grace

/dev/sdb3 10205288* 10000000 11000000 none 639803 0 0

When you reduce the disk space you use on PUMA to below your quota a new login session to PUMA will allow X11 windows again.

Cheers

Andy
