This section highlights updates and changes in the Graphical Environment components:
The X.org X11R6.8.2 X server replaces the old X11R5 server from SCO OpenServer Release 5. This new X server provides faster performance and support for a wider set of video adapters -- see ``Video adapter support''.
X.org documentation is available from the Graphical Environment category in the online documentation. Also see the xorg(4) and xorg.conf(4) manual pages.
In most cases, SCO OpenServer can automatically detect and configure your video hardware to run the X server. See ``Configuring video adapters'' for more information.
If desired, you can use
to start the X server and provide graphical login services.
You can select to have
scologin enabled automatically during the installation.
Or, you can run scologin manually:
# scologin enable
By default, the X server and scologin run on tty02.
In addition to the standard Panorama (xdt3) Desktop, SCO OpenServer Release 6.0.0 also offers the new KDE Desktop, version 3.3.2.
Panorama is the default Graphical Environment desktop. To change the default desktop, see ``Running a different desktop environment''.
The Panorama Desktop is unchanged from previous SCO OpenServer releases.
xdt3 is a good choice if you want to run a minimal desktop environment or want to customize an OSF/Motif® environment based on the pmwm window manager.
Documentation that covers using and configuring this desktop environment is available from the Panorama (xdt3) Desktop topic in the online documentation.
KDE for SCO OpenServer Release 6.0.0 includes the following KDE subsystems:
The KDE documentation is integrated into the desktop environment and available by running KHelpCenter. See ``Using the KDE Desktop'' for an introduction to the KDE interface and the collection of KDE applications that are provided with SCO OpenServer Release 6.0.0.
Note the following about this implementation of KDE:
SCO OpenServer Release 6.0.0 includes a number of applications for use in the Graphical Environment, including X.org X clients and SCO X clients, such as scomail(XC) and scoterm(XC).
Please note the following issues:
