I just installed the latest stable version of my favorite terminal emulator, cool-retro-term, and, upon running it, I get this:
user@main:~$ cool-retro-term Qt: Session management error: None of the authentication protocols specified are supported libGL error: MESA-LOADER: failed to retrieve device information libGL error: Version 4 or later of flush extension not found libGL error: failed to load driver: i915 default KB_LAYOUT_DIR: "/snap/cool-retro-term/32/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qt5/qml/QMLTermWidget/kb-layouts" QObject::connect: No such slot Konsole::TerminalDisplay_QML_51::close() loadAllColorSchemes Session::run() - program: "/bin/bash" Session::run() - arguments: ("") started! Both point size and pixel size set. Using pixel size.
The GUI works just fine, but whenever I try to run commands from within the terminal emulator, I get a "permission denied" message.
I thought running as superuser might solve the permissions problem, but instead, I get:
username@main:~$ sudo cool-retro-term mkdir: cannot create directory '/run/user/0': Permission denied No protocol specified QXcbConnection: Could not connect to display :0 Aborted
I have to admit I'm stumped here. Is there something obvious I'm overlooking?
Please let me know. Thanks!
(P.S. I've tried sudo-apt-get-update, and I've tried installing through Ubuntu's software application. Both installs had the same issue.)
