View Full Version : [xubuntu] Cannot connect to X display after ssh -X

January 13th, 2009, 02:41 AM
I ssh'd to my ubuntu machine from mac os x using ssh -X.

Now when I ssh (without -X forwarding) and try to run a program on the local X server I get this:

MBP:~ djfumberger$ ssh dave@
dave@'s password:

dave@server:~$ export DISPLAY=:0.0
dave@server:~$ xterm
No protocol specified
xterm Xt error: Can't open display: :0.0

The .Xauthority file is empty which I'm suspecting might have something to do with it.

Any ideas what I've got to do to get the local X server functioning again ?
