XIO: fatal IO error 32 (Broken pipe) on X server "string:0.0"


This error means that I/O with the X server has been broken. The 0.0 represents the display device, which is usually the console. This message can appear when a user is running Display PostScript applications and the X server disappears or the client is shut down. Data loss is possible, if applications disappeared before saving files.


Try to run the application again in a few minutes after the system has rebooted and the window system is running.
