I'm trying to open a remote session in this manner and getting the

What is it, and what can I do about it?
Check in /etc/ssh/sshd_config for the line:
If it is missing, add it, and restart the ssh daemon.
If that doesnt fix it, type 'echo $DISPLAY' on the remote system after
in, and tell us what it says.
Silly me, I had forgotten that one. Thanks
Now when I do echo $DISPLAY I get nothing, just a blank.
When I start the forwarded gnome-seesion I get the debian logo and an
error saying that the daemon crashed.
What should I do next?
