UBUNTU remote X windowing systems

Als Alternative für einen guten X-Client unter Windows habe ich X-Ming32 http://www.osalt.com/x-win32 ausgewählt.


Voraussetzungen auf UNIX:

  • By default remote x-windows (port 6000) is disabled in Ubuntu. Now one easy way around this is just to use ssh to login with port forwarding like such:
    $ ssh -X host
    This will set the DISPLAY variable automatically and any X program you run will be automatically tunneled back through the ssh connection.
    Otherwise we’re going to need to enable it. Here’s how:

    1. Go to System->Administration->Login Window (or run gdmsetup as root)
    2. Under the security tab uncheck „Deny TCP connections to Xserver“
    3. Now we have to restart gdm which will kill our Xsession.
    # kill -HUP `cat /var/run/gdm.pid`
    or if you prefer to edit /etc/gdm.conf by hand, make sure there are no overriding settings in /etc/gdm.conf-custom. Under the security section change DisallowTCP to false.

    Unfortunately we cannot use gdmflexiserver, only a gdm restart will work.

  •  if you have /etc/gdm.conf-custom then modify the disallowtcp setting, if not just modify it in /etc/gdm.conf. Then run:
    # /etc/init.d/gdm restart
