cde

Common Desktop Environment

Solaris only. The Common Desktop Environment (CDE) is the default graphical user interface (GUI) on Solaris systems. Solaris 7 users may choose between CDE and OpenWindows, but OpenWindows is marked as obsolete and not supported past Solaris 7.

Documenting CDE would require its own book and is beyond the scope of this one. Instead, listed here are some of the more useful individual CDE commands, which are kept in /usr/dt/bin . (Commands for the D eskt op.) In addition, a number of OpenWindows commands are still useful. See the listing under openwin in Appendix B .
