I just set up a fedora distribution on my computer and am slowly trying to learn how to work from the command line. I was testing
R which went fine, except for some reason when I tried again I suddenly seem to be unable to draw plots. I get the error:
> x = 1:5 > y = x^2 > plot(x,y) No protocol specified Error in X11(d$display, d$width, d$height, d$pointsize, d$gamma, d$colortype, : unable to start device X11cairo In addition: Warning message: In function (display = "", width, height, pointsize, gamma, bg, : unable to open connection to X11 display ''
and when I check the capabilities I see that
> capabilities() No protocol specified jpeg png tiff tcltk X11 aqua http/ftp sockets TRUE TRUE TRUE TRUE FALSE FALSE TRUE TRUE libxml fifo cledit iconv NLS profmem cairo TRUE TRUE TRUE TRUE TRUE FALSE TRUE
Although I know nothing about whether those are connected or not it seems X11 should be on?
Everywhere I searched for this people seemed to have this problem when working over an ssh connection (I haven't yet taken a look at what that is exactly :$).
I hope someone who knows what this problem is about could be so nice to explain the problem to me and suggest a solution.
Thanks in advance from a n00b
