    We need a bit more than this. Is this in a terminal or on X? How are you launching it? Are there errors? What version?

    latest version for linux downloaded from official syncterm website, so do not know the version number but I am assuming latest official release. Yes from X or (wayland) actually it will not run, no error what so ever. I was merely asking if anyone out there running opensuse had successfully got syncterm to work? Side note netrunner will not run either.

    I just tried to run SyncTerm on opensuse Tumbleweed. I did an ssh to
    the server as my bbs users and then compiled and launched SyncTerm and
    it was just fine.

    Are you running from the console which is running X or are you
    connecting via ssh and trying to run it from there using a Windows
    based xserver like xming?

    Do you have xauth installed?

    Since you couldn't be bothered to give any sort of error messages that
    might indicate what is going on, that's about as much as I can help you
    with. Bottom line, it works.

    FWIW there's a few issues warnings when compiling

    "grep: warning: stray \ before #" lots of times
    "egrep: warning: egrep is obscolescent; using grep -E" lots of times
    lots of various 'xxxx' accessing x bytes in a region of size xx

    Otherwise, works fine.
    opensuse uses gcc 12.2.1
