Ok.

It looks like I need to install the xauth package server side (on the rPi) to enable this (the error is caused by an empty DISPLAY variable so you need to enable X11 forwarding and send it the value over ssh from your client PC). It's not in the repository, can you help?

xauth is provided by the Xlibs extension.

I installled Xlibs (you need a capital X or it fails) - can't see it!

Or is it hidden somewhere?

After installing Xlibs:

Code: [Select]
tce-status -i

Just rebooted and checked - DISPLAY var is still empty (confident I'm forwarding X11)

Hi Cyclic
Xlibs  does contain an  xauth (/usr/bin/xauth)  program:

Thanks Rich - I have got that file in /usr/bin but I'm still not getting any X11 forwarding.

I'm giving up for now, going to use Raspbian instead - I've been at this a while now and my plan of later on installing LAMP seems like a big potential nightmare if this is how hard it is to get DLNA working!

Thanks to all for your help, it's much appreciated!
