View Full Version : [ubuntu] Forwarding X server -> desktop

May 11th, 2008, 02:10 PM
Hi guys, I've got a little problem. I am trying to get to work transport of X server over ssh from my server to my desktop. I got to work transporting from my
Ubuntu 8.04 LTS hardy to another desktop, even windows. However I'm unable to solve this problem: I have an Ubuntu 7.10 server on my local network, it is running no GUI (I think it is called init3, not sure though), I am accessing it just over ssh. Everything is just fine, however when I run

# sdoky@sdoky-desktop:~$ ssh -l sdoky -Xand

# sdoky@sdoky-server:~$ gedit
# cannot open display:
# sdoky@sdoky-server:~$Any suggestions? Thanks
