  Hands on X11
Subject:   Yes, but how do I run Mac OS X apps through X?
Date:   2003-04-26 05:47:15
From:   anonymous2
I'm looking to export my Mac's display to another system, so that when I run apps (X11 apps, of course) on my Mac, they'll display on my PC's X11 server. Or my Linux boxes. Over SSH.


When I ssh -X to my OSX box the DISPLAY variable is not set, as in this example from xterm on my OSX box:


[bkoehn@g4 foo]$ echo $DISPLAY
:0.0
[bkoehn@g4 foo]$ ssh -X localhost
bkoehn@localhost's password:
Last login: Sat Apr 26 07:44:00 2003 from localhost
Welcome to Darwin!
[bkoehn@g4 foo]$ echo $DISPLAY


[bkoehn@g4 foo]$



Any ideas on how to fix this?
