Dear Lars,

      Can user set his own login page means once login into application
whether user can see his own option / Module.

Say for example - If Healthworker/ Data entry operator login dataentry
module should display as login screen, if another level user say State
person logins he wants to see Dashboard as his default page.

Currently we can set login module in system settings which means the same
can be applied for all users. If any user change the start page according
to his choice , the same page is showing for all other users.
Can we make user specific login page?

Hi

Not really sure what you mean by gedit of pgadmin3…

The kind of error you are getting is usually caused by the X environment missing its DISPLAY property. Did you do this through an SSH session? To use SSH forwarding with X, you need to use ssh -x , and then start the program you want.

Thanks for your time Morten. What I meant is gedit or pgadmin3.

gedit is a graphical text editor in Ubuntu. pgadmin3 is also a graphical application that can be used to administer postgresql database. I get the error message **(Error: Unable to initialize gtk, is display set properly?) **each time I try to run any of those programs.

I am connecting through Putty to the Ubuntu 10.0.4 server.

If you use putty,you are on windows. Are you sure your windows machine supports remote X windows? You will need extra software for this.

Better to use command line tools (psql and vi) instead of the graphical tools if you connect through putty.

Yes I think we have a section in our manual that refers to gedit on
ubuntu server which won't work. Instead of gedit you need to use a
terminal based editor like vi (if you already know it) or nano or pico
which may be easier for beginners.

You also won't be able to run pgadmin directly on the server. Either
use the psql command interface or access using pgadmin from a client
machine (if you've set up postgres permissions to allow you to do
this).

Thanks Bob, Andrew;

I downloaded and installed an X windows server on the client machine I am connecting from and gedit started working. It was very slow though. I ended up using nano.

You are correct Bob. There is an area in your manual that talks about PgAdmin3 but like you said, it is not working. I had to use psql instead.

There is also an area in the manual that talks about apache-tomcat; I followed the steps on “preparing tomcat for dhis”. Tomcat is now running but it is not executing dhis. Is there something else i need to do? Please advice.

If you have the time, I can provide you with the login details to my server so you can login and check.

Thanks,

Ese
