    Can you please tell me why I get “can’t open display ” in response to any of the X-window commands entered in command line in my debian computer. What is the solution?

    Your tutorials are very good, but I am still a beginner.

    Best wishes, Zach

      You can’t run X based applications from commandline, you just have Desktop Environment such Gnome, Cinnamon, Mate, etc installed on the system..

    “eyes” is indeed one of those seemingly silly apps. I use it on my system all the time. I have three screens, and frequently “lose” my mouse. a quick check of “eyes”(located atthe bottom of my middle monitor) is usually all I need to locate it again.

      Dear Thorin,
      It is the beauty of Linux that an useless program for one user is so much useful for another. Keep Connected!

    It would be even more helpful if the availability of these commands is shown. Very few of them are available on my (Redhat) system by default. Probably need to add packages and/or adjust paths. Also, everyone assumes your system is connected to the internet, but for many secure systems, this is not the case, so yum will not work, at least not simply.

    • Avishek Kumar says:

      Dear Pasquale, all of these commands should be available on most of the Linux Distro, using standard repo.

      You can find the package using apt-cache search (Debian Based), yum search (Fedora Based). You may contact the relevant community or ping us, if needed.
