Hi Raphaël!

Due to your hints i found out, that the problem is my X-configuration. I 
am trying to fix it (which turns out to be tricky) and will report back, 
when i find a solution.

Maybe I was naiv, but I did not know pgadmin3 needs an X-server to be 
installed. I only read about wxWindows and assumed this would be 
installed with the pgadmin3-.debs by apt-get automatically. As I 
mentioned, I am no Linux Guru. I use the Linux system as database server 
and had no need for X so far.
