Re: I have a SSH connection and need GUI installed
I have X tools on my Mac.
I also have "X11Forwarding yes" in /etc/ssh/sshd_config
I have installed xnest.
But I guess I need either Gnome or KDE?
No, not necessary.
On my Leopard Mac, I go into the HD, then /Applications/Utilities, and
fire up X11.
This opens an xterm.
In the xterm, I enter "ssh -X email@example.com", and log into
my Debian box with my normal Debian password for "westk".
Now I can run any of my apps by entering their name. For example, to run
Iceweasel, I enter "iceweasel &". Here's some other examples:
Just for kicks, I tried "startkde &", and interesting things happened.
But by "interesting", I mean, "interesting like a train wreck". I bet
you could get KDE to run properly, but it's more hassle than I'm willing
to put into it. The full environment seems to clash with the OS/X
environment. If I need KDE-ish stuff, I'd just run the individual apps,
like "kwrite &".
