"Run in a X Terminal" Rocket Science
« on: April 29, 2008, 07:46:04 pm »
hi

1. Project Settings -> Tools -> Tool Name
2. check property: "Run in a X Terminal"

"Can't find an X terminal emulator (xterm,dtterm,aixter,hpterm,cmdtool). Please set VSLICKXTERM tor the full path to your X terminal emulator."

- X11 on Mac Os X is a major PITA ( no .xinitrc in ~/ for instance)
- I've tried several things including reinstall XDeveloperTools and reinstallion of X11.

Why is there a problem anyway? Calling "OS Shell" from Tools isn't a problem.
Please tell me how its done. I'm out of ideas.

Thanks
Ben

OK

I just saw that this VSLICKXTERM is definied in vslick.ini. In the beginning of the quest for a solution I actually tried that. But in the wrong file.

- it's not in /Applications/Slickedit.app/Contents/bin/vslick.ini

but in

~/.slickedit/13.0.0/vslick.ini:
-------------------------------------
[Environment]
...
VSLICKXTERM=/usr/X11/bin/xterm
-------------------------------------

- the good: the error message disappeared

- the bad: no terminal window is visible

grrr..
