New Re: Ubuntu minimal setup question
When SSH'ing from the source box (assuming that this is also Linux here), just "ssh -X ip.add.ress.here". That should enable you to throw the X-based app windows back to the box you're SSH'ing from.

New As long as...
The "server" you are ssh'ing into is setup for it.

I just went over this on the Debian mailing list.

Following the suggestions about configs will help you get the auto-magic display offset and make it so you do not have to do the -X (and you can force -C there as well)

Cheers.

The guy was having an issue understanding "X", so I 'splained it to him.







edit: sheesh, I can't even finish three things at one.

New None of these suggestions apply to this issue
I had already taken care of all of them.

The issue is when you have a minimally setup host, one that does not run X-Windows on the console. There is some critical utility (xauth maybe) that is not installed, which means even when everything else it setup, it still does not setup a DISPLAY variable or a tunnel back for the xwindows ession.

After I shotgunned the following, it worked:

apt-get install x-window-system-core xfs xserver

But I'd prefer to get the minimal working stuff for my "utility" instances.
New Ok.
No need for my input.

You want answers.

New I would suggest you don't want ubuntu then
and should go back to straight deb.

New On deb, you would want the xbase-clients package
And depending on the configuration of X and sshd, ssh -Y will work instead of ssh -X.
