Yed install error on debian 10

0 votes

Hi everyone.

I just move from debian 9 to 10 buster (amd64).

I want to use Yed like done on debian 9.

Installing the last Yed installer (yEd-3.19_with-JRE11_64-bit_setup.sh), i receive the following error message :

Could not display the GUI. This application needs access to an X Server.

Bellow, all messages received on the installation :

Could not display the GUI. This application needs access to an X Server.

Is there anyone met this problem too ?

Searching to fix the problem, I read debian passed from xorg to wayland in buster.

Could my problem be link to that ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

As the error message says, yEd and its installer scripts need an X server to run. Since you are running Wayland, you probably need to have XWayland (or any other X server for Wayland) running to install/run yEd.

Hi everyone.

I found the solution.

My mistake was to try installing the yEd-3.19_with-JRE11_64-bit_setup.sh from terminal.

i succed install it from nautilus in my own GUI session, after giving to the script the execute rights.

Thanks a lot for the helps
