remote X weirdness
This is not a strictly laptop problem, but I see it on a laptop :-)
It happens at least on Libranet 2.8, and I seem to recall seeing it
happen on other Debians.
I "ssh -XC <ip>", then "firefox" or "firefox&". Sure enough, I get
Firefox on my local display. But, it gives every indication that it is
a local Firefox, not Firefox on the remote box; the URL "file:///"
shows the local filesystem. Other X apps run through the ssh ARE on
the remote box.
What the heck is going on here? And how to I fix it?
Willie, ONWARD! Through the fog!
