cannot connect to display :0.0
« on: November 29, 2015, 01:24:33 pm »

if any testers of 7.2 come across this issue simply do

Code: [Select]
export DISPLAY="127.0.0.1:0.0
thats a sloppy hack to get the display going again. we know what the problem is and are working to correct it as i type this

Your "sloppy hack" works beautifully (thank God), but I'm concerned as to whether it will always work. If you do know what caused the problem, please let us know what it was and also if there might be a more permanent solution. Thank you (and thanks for your "sloppy hack" -- it's been a "lifesaver").
