I'm trying to use virt-manager (0.9.5) on an Ubuntu server (version 14.04). I can connect to the Ubuntu server. I connect to the Ubuntu server via Putty, TurboVNC, or via the IP Management Interface with a web browser and connect via a remote console. When I use the virt-manager command, I go to the next command line. There is no error and nothing pops up. I configured Putty to Enable X11 forwarding. The /etc/ssh_config and /etc/sshd_config files are configured to allow X11 forwarding. libvirt and xterm have been installed. virsh list shows VMs running.
"virt-manager --debug" returns an error about "Unable to initialize GTK: could not open display"
Why cannot I see a pop up after I use the virt-manager command when I am root? I desire to have a GUI pop up to create a VM.
Update: Xserver was already installed on the laptop. I changed the repositories the Ubuntu server pointed to and upgraded virt-manager to 1.2 with an apt-get command. Don't apt-get commands install necessary dependencies? virt-manager still isn't working. The upgrade worked (virt-manager --version proves it). But this following command shows libosinfo is 2.9-1:
apt-cache policy libosinfo-1.0.0
I thought virt-manager 1.2 required libosinfo to be at 2.10.
virt-manager still doesn't work. Why isn't virt-manager working? If libosinfo wasn't installed properly with the apt-get install virt-manager command, how do I upgrade libosinfo?
