Users / X11 forwarding through SSH
« on: January 16, 2011, 07:26:58 pm »
First off i am not asking for help doing this, i have tried and given up but i just wanted to see if anyone has been able to do this.

I mainly took on trying to do this because a friend said i couldn't but the internet said it is possible so i thought id try. I decided to do it from my mac to my core. I started by installing OpenSSH server on my core, then editing ssh_config and sshd_config to allow X11 forwarding. Then i logged into my core from my mac and i set the display variable to "1" since x was already running on "0". Finally i used the command xeyes to open that application and it gave me the error cant start display. I also tried startx but instead of starting a session on my mac it just started a new x session on the core.

So i was stumped and gave up, but maybe someone can see my error.

it was jsut an idea i threw out.
i would guess either have an irc chat open, or start a skype video chat and make a schedule for who should be on.
put up a sign "Chat with an auctual user"

Why not just use something like for most of the weather readings like every other project does? :P

After reading i think you have to sign up with them, to get a license key.

I just want to make sure im on the same page as everyone else. In Thom's first post in this thread he said that 1004 would be build on top of ubuntu, but the wiki states kubuntu. I was just wanted to know, who is correct?

yes, wget just downloads the file

the other commands unzip and install the file

im sorry esev, i didnt mean to step on your toes there.

I know everyone can look up the stats but i thought it would be good to see what tickets are left for 0810

Open tickets for:
Defect: 50
Task: 20
Feature_Patch: 50
Defect_Patch: 6
Feature_Release: 20

84 - not really fixable on our end - from the comments i think it can be closed but im not 100% sure - can be fixed easily, remove those links from the download page

so then you will install kubuntu on your hard drive, then boot from that DVD snapshot, in the setup when it asks you where to install you will click change partition table and make a new partition and install linuxMCE there

if i understand what you are doing, you will want to do ubuntu first, then kubuntu, then linuxmce, so that kubuntu will be first in the MBR and will start as your default OS.

thats what i did, but found out that my dvd drive is broken, so i tried mounting that image to a flash drive and installing and that didnt work. So i was looking that 2 CD install so i could install kubuntu and linuxMCE separately

I am in the same boat, i was trying to install linuxMCE 810 so i downloaded the DVD.iso and then realized i didnt have a working DVD drive, so then i tried mounting the iso to a flashdrive using unetbootin and booting from that, it got to the kbuntu load screen then the screen just started flashing with lines on it and didnt go any further. So now i installed kubuntu, but neither of the download links on the download page of work, so for right now i cant install to do some testing
