No working window appaers after start.
I have successfully installed Mosquitto on a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ (Debian = stretch).
Here is the result on the Raspberry :
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ mosquitto -v 1559603778: mosquitto version 1.6.2 starting 1559603778: Using default config. 1559603778: Opening ipv4 listen socket on port 1883. 1559603778: Error: Address already in use pi@raspberrypi:~ $
Apparently runs the program but no working window appears on the screen.
What am I doing wrong?

I do not use Mosquito, but maybe it is already running automatically after RPI starts?
Thank you for your efforts.
Apparently it doesn't matter that the port is already in use.
Can this help you?
I can't find a forum for Mosquitto users either.

mosquitto -v #start in verbose mode
If your mosquito is already running, you cannot start it again.
First stop it:
sudo service mosquitto stop sudo systemctl stop mosquitto.service
And then try your:
I do what you says and this what happen not more.
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo service mosquitto stop
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo systemctl stop mosquitto.service
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ mosquitto -v

@mslv129jdg How do you have installed mosquitto? if you have installed it with the standard
sudo apt install mosquitto mosquitto-clients
then, the server starts automatically when you boot your Pi.
Mosquitto is a server program so it is normal that you don't see any new window. See this if you want to know how to test your MQTT server.
I just uninstall mosquitto... with sudo apt-get purge --remove mosquitto*
The first time i install with :
sudo wget http://repo.mosquitto.org/debian/mosquitto-repo.gpg.key
sudo apt-key add mosquitto-repo.gpg.key
sudo wget http://repo.mosquitto.org/debian/mosquitto-stretch.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install mosquitto
I look and study your link.
Eureka...eureka... Mosquitto works....
Thanks to your contributions I have achieved what I wanted step by step.... for which I thank you.
Indeed Mosquitto has worked in the beginning but I am expecting an opening window.
Meanwhile, I have successfully send a message from the terminal window 1 to 2.
Thanks to all who have taken the trouble to look at my question and send me a possible solution.
See you later.
