    kde4 kubuntu ssh -X

    Hi all,

    I'm running Kubuntu 8.04 and I've been happily and successfully ssh-ing into my school's servers for many months now, and I recently upgraded from KDE 3.5 to KDE 4 by just installing the KDE4 package on Adept. I use ssh -X so I can get GUIs pulled up from the remote machine on my machine. Anyway, when I first upgraded I could do some of that still, and gradually it's gone to now where it always says X11 authentication refused or something like that...obviously because I have a different KDE version, but on the other hand I still have KDE3 installed, so I logged into that, and it still says authentication failed. There's gotta be a way (in my mind) to fix this. I've had GUI windows up from the remote machine in KDE4 even, so that tells me that there's gotta be a way.


    Sorry for the long explanation. It's really not complicated at all.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    **UPDATE** So I just was able to get it working again in KDE3 by doing nothing at all. I didn't do a thing. Very confusing!

    I don't know why its happen, but if ssh -X gives you X11 authentication errors it has nothing to do with KDE3 or KDE4.

    Try check your ssh and network and X11 configuration, forget anything about KDE3 or KDE4.

    Oh OK, thanks. I guess I just assumed it was KDE4 since it started happening after I installed KDE4. Well what might have changed in my X configuration? I mean I never go in and edit my xorg.conf file or anything, because everything was working fine. Any ideas to check?
