    Question Server Edition, ssh -X Problem receiving GUI

    Host Ubuntu 9.04 Server Editiion, Client Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty

    Code:
    :~/Documents$ gedit 000-default~ 
    Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "atk-bridge": libatk-bridge.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    As a test I just opened the backup of the 000-default file and then posted the pre-error I get before the gedit opens on the ssh client, it works! I have xauth installed on the server.
    I know to get Flash working on a 64bit version I had to put a .so file into a Firefox directory but that's where my knowledge of .so files ends unfortuately. There's no libatk entry in synaptic. There are a good few pages when I google libatk-bridge but maybe someone could point me in the right direction. Even just outline the problem would be great.

    I should add I did have Gnome on the server at one stage but I took it off again.

    sounds like the packages ia32-libs, at-spi, & libatspi-dbg have a file named that. If the server is 64 bit I'm betting that the ia32-libs is the one you need.

    It was actually the other way round. My server is 32bit and my Client machine is 64bit. The Client had the files you mentioned installed but the Server did not. I installed them and the error is gone. The gedit page doesn't close straight away now and the Client asks if I want to force the close but before I can respond the page closes. I guess this is normal because of the communication between Server and Client before the page closes, now that it's working correctly.
    Thanks.

    Do you mind looking at this thread of mine? It sounds like you might know how to do what I'm trying to do.
