Creating a display name file

To avoid entering a display name every time you start Blueworx Voice Response, you can create a display name file. The display name file must be stored in the directory defined by the value of $HOME in the profile for the Blueworx Voice Response user. This means that the Blueworx Voice Response windows will always start on this display.



  1. Log on as dtuser. Do not start Blueworx Voice Response.
  2. The display name for a terminal is the terminal name, not the name of the host system from which the terminal is booted. If you are unsure of the correct display name, type echo $DISPLAY at the command prompt and press Enter.

    The system shows the display name.

  3. Create a new file called .display.cfg in the $HOME directory.
  4. Add a single line to the file that identifies the display by name.

    For example, if your display is called magpie, and you plan to use a single instance of the X server, add a line that looks like this:

  5. Save the file.

The system uses the display name in this file whenever you start Blueworx Voice Response.
