Hi all,

I need start a openoffice in Xvfb, but when I call with the DISPLAY
occurs this error:

[[email protected] oood]# Xvfb :99 -screen 0 1024x768x24 &

In [9]: subprocess.call('/opt/ooo-dev3/program/soffice.bin')
Out[9]: 0

In [10]: subprocess.call('DISPLAY=:99 /opt/ooo-dev3/program/soffice.bin')
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am using subprocess because I need store the pid. Any suggestions?

thanks in advance,
