Starting an application under X

Post by lbalan79 »

I am trying to start an application under X. Maybe even the basic terminal. Anyone that can help with this?
I did try a simple DISPLAY=:0 /mnt/bin/ash

Any help appreciated

we already played around with this but remember that such app will NOT have ANY access to sound system :) Also NO input from remote etc. :)
I do NOT support "latest fw" at ALL. If you have one you should block updates on router and wait for it to STOP being "latest":)
If you want me to help you please paste FULL log(s) to "spoiler"/"code" bbcodes or provide link(s) to pasted file(s) on http://ctrlv.it/ Otherwise "NO HELP"!!!
If you want root DISABLE internet access to your device!!!!
DO NOT EVER INSTALL FIRMWARE UPGRADE !!!!

I did see the ubuntu tutorial. That is very very interesting. However I am looking if there is a way to use the existing running X server same like exeAPP and exeTV do.

Thank you

It looks you did "see" but you didn't read/understand the tutorial :) It describes how to use EXISTING X server :)
