#978 closed help (fixed)

Can't open window (e.g. umui or nedit) on PUMA.

Reported by: RPope Owned by: um_support
Component: UM Model Keywords: PUMA issues
Cc: nhsavage Platform: <select platform>
UM Version: 8.2

Description

When logging onto PUMA, I ssh -Y RPope@… or
ssh -X RPope@… and I log in fine.

I then try to run the umui or other interfaces/windows and I get the following error message:

IDL>>X11 connection rejected because of wrong authentication.
Application initialization failed: couldn't connect to display "localhost:39.0"
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)

Anybody come across this before??

Hi Richard,

you had run out of quota on PUMA and this caused the X11 windows forwarding error. When you ssh into a server and see this error check your quota with quota -s and if you have exceeded it try removing some files to get below your quota. A new ssh session is required after doing the file removal as the X11 forwarding is reliant on a small file being written into your home directory which cannot happen when you are over your quota.

I've increased your quota and a new session to PUMA should be okay again.

Cheers

Andy
