X window Troubleshooting

Its not able find fonts or unable to connect to xfs server.
You can try following..

1. See if xfs server is running, restart if its dead
Code: [Select]
service xfs restart
then do startx
if did not work then


2. See permissin of /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/fonts.alias and make it sufficient enough to be accessible (use chmod)
If that too not works


3.  Edit xorg.conf and there  FontPath "unix:7100"
FontPath "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts"

And let us know.
