I just recently installed Lubuntu-Minimal on my laptop and I downloaded firefox to test with that. when I try to open it using firefox in the terminal I get the Error: no DISPLAY environment variable specified.
I tried googling it and it told me to echo $DISPLAY but that returned nothing.
I ended up installing lubuntu-desktop and set it back to open to the terminal on boot but I still get the same problems when trying to run firefox.
I can run startx from the console and it'll boot me to the desktop and everything will work from there.
How can get I firefox (or any other program) to start from the console? (I'm trying to learn gui-less linux)
