    ssh -X is notsending me the signal

    I ssh into my server with "ssh -X servername" the user names are identical. I type in anything say "dolphin" to open up the file manager I get
    Code:
    Cannot find the D-Bus session server:  "/bin/dbus-launch terminated abnormally with the following error: Autolaunch error: X11 initialization failed.
    why? This was after a recent update. I do no know if this matters

    if that does work (suddenly started working again over here) why does or did -X fail all of the sudden. If I do not know why it happened, I can't figure out how to fix it.

    man ssh

    The -Y switch assumes "trusted" forwarding of the X-session, where -X requires going through an xsession security/authority check. If this fails, then no session.

    Check your log files (/var/log) on both machines to get the details. Most likely auth.log.

    Depending on what you updated, you may need to reboot to allow the new code to work correctly.
