Software :: Remote X Over SSH / Gnome Session Running On The Client Machine?

Oct 15, 2010

Running Ubuntu 10.04 to 10.04 over LAN; I can SSH -X into my server just fine, and am able to launch various applications (Nautilus, Gnome-Terminal, Disk Utility, etc) but I'd really like a Gnome desktop. When I've tried the various StartX commands and gnome-session, but something just isn't clicking. Is there a way to have a 'second' Gnome session running on the client over the first?

To pre-empt some obvious solutions; I don't wish to use VNC, the lag drives me nuts, and I'd like to keep my gnome session running on the client machine if possible. If it's not possible, that's fine; it just seems like there'd be a way to do it?

General :: Display The Source Machine During A Remote X Session In The Title Bar?

Aug 8, 2011

In the past, when I open a gvim session on a remote machine, the title bar of gvim would show the machine name in brackets. I am not sure if this was done by the remote gvim itself, or the local window manager. In the past I have used gnome2, although I am currently using unity (and finding it rather frustrating). Is there some setting I can change to always force remote windows to display the source machine?

Software :: Running X-Server From Remote Shell Session?

Apr 7, 2010

How do I obtain information about the running x-server from a remote shell session? I want to know things like resolution, color depth, etc. My xorg.conf is basically empty. The only thing I can think of doing is to read the Xorg.0.log file which seems inefficient.

I thought that 'xrandr' displayed some text output but that behavior has changed (?). It seems to require an X display. Is there another way? Something I could incorporate into a shell script? (This is Fedora but that shouldn't really matter)

Ubuntu :: Running A Tidy Gnome-session Over X?

Oct 13, 2010

I have both a mac and ubuntu box sitting on my desk. I work on the mac and access the ubuntu box over ssh.Often I need the point-and-click interface of the ubuntu box, at which point I run gnome-session. The problem is that the top and bottom menu bars fill the full size available to them, which can cause me problems (I use two different-sized screens and the barsget hidden), and overall it looks very messy. I would therefore like to confine the gnome-session to a window, much like you get with vnc (or parallels if you're running a virtual ubuntu session).

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Access Work Remote Desktop Via The Terminal Server Client On Wired Box Running 10.10?

Dec 3, 2010

I am at a loss. I can not access my work remote desktop via the terminal server client on my wired box running Ubuntu 10.10. My wireless laptop is able to connect right away once I established the VPN connection. The VPN connection is established on both boxes with no problems.

When I tried the Terminal Server Client on my wired boxed, it says it can not establish a connection. Yet my wireless box gets connected immediately!

I check the /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf and the /etc/resolv.conf to see if there were any differences, but they are essentially the same. When I have the vpnc connection, they both recognize it and I am able to ping the IP address shown when I do a "ifconfig" on the terminal.

What can be the problem? Anything I need to configure on a wired computer versus a wireless one? What else can I check?

Ubuntu :: Can't Turn On Terminal Bell In Gnome-terminal Using Remote Screen Session With Irssi

Nov 6, 2010

I'm using 10.04, and gnome-terminal GNOME Terminal 2.30.2 . I have irssi running on screen session on remote host. And I've been struggling for quite many days to configure it to produce either visual feedback or ring terminal's bell when I receive a private message or one of those that are highlighted.

My compiz settings window in General tab has 'Audible bell' checked.

My GNOME terminal has 'Terminal bell' checked.

I also added 'set bell-style audible' to my ~/.inputrc

And I also tried to manually load pcspkr module into my kernel.

No of the above helped or at least I haven't been able to notice any difference.

I also used some commands for irssi to produce bell sign.

Ubuntu :: Run Script On GNOME Startup Without Gnome Session Manager

Nov 12, 2010

I'm currently building a ubuntu distro and would like to run a script on GNOME startup. I've read about doing it through the session manager but I have to do it through chroot so I'll need to set it up as a terminal command. Is there a way to add an item to the Session Manager from terminal or, even better, a directory where I can put the script so it will run on start?

Fedora :: Launch X Apps On A Remote Ssh Session?

Mar 5, 2010

Desktop computer (AMD64) running F12. Nothing unusual about it, stock install. Thinkpad laptop running Windows XP. Putty is installed, I can SSH to Fedora.

If I'm at the laptop, in a Putty session, how can I (for example) type "firefox" and have the resultant Firefox window appear on-the-laptop?

I generally have X running all the time on the desktop because I can't get the wireless network connection to function without NetworkManger (not that I really care because I'm rarely at a console screen and need net access).

Ubuntu Servers :: Connecting - Using A Remote X Session?

Nov 10, 2010

I've been working on this since last night (a few hours) but can't seem to find what I am looking for. I'll spare you the details of what I've tried already.

Could someone guide me through connecting to my Ubuntu server using a remote X session? The "kicker" is that I want to do this from a Knoppix LIVE CD. So whatever method I am given will have to be something that is common to most Linux distros.

I imagine I will need help with two important steps:

1) verifying that I have an xserver of some kind running on my server.

2) command line statement for starting the Xserver from the remote machine.

Ubuntu :: Remote Session In Separate Workspace

Feb 5, 2011

I am heavily using remote X11 via ssh (from Ubuntu to Ubuntu).The method I am using is connecting with ssh -X and then running the X application I want to use.Most of the times this is adequate but some times I need to have a desktop view. Running gnome-session in the ssh session, produces a couple of errors (printer and other hardware related) which appears normal but at the end it works. The problem is that desktops end up mixed up with windows from all sessions together and the panels and menus from the last session.

What I am trying to achieve is to have each gnome session in a specific workspace. It will be easy using shortcuts like ctrl-super-right/left to move between different machines. Can something like that be achieved?I know the easy solution would be to vnc to all machines and maximize the vnc viewer in the desired workspace, but this would be really slow and against the linux way of thinking (as is trying to get the remote gnome desktop, but that is another story).Another solution would be to open the gnome panels in a titled window, so that I can see them all at once and distribute them across workspaces. But how do I do that?

Ubuntu :: Run A Remote Unix Session Using System?

Aug 2, 2011

At the moment I am using Hummingbird Exceed on a windows PC to display X windows from a Unix server. The actual Exceed tool I use is called 'hwm' which I believe is basically an pc based X Windows manager. I do not need to configure anything other than the client computer name, IP address and screen definition and the server will then allow a connection and display the X windows on the client. I was wondering if there is an equivalent application I can run using Ubunto as a client insted of a Windows PC?

Red Hat :: High Network Usage With Remote X Session

Aug 5, 2009

I am trying to figure out why the remote X performance of our RedHat 5.3 system is so bad. We have tried using X (Gnome session) from several different X Servers (Windows Xceed, Windows XWinPro, Linux Xnest - both Fedora 11 and Centos 5.3 and Mac OS Xnest) and the system is barely usable. I have monitored the network traffic on the RHEL system and it goes up to 6MB/s at some points, which seems a bit too high for X net traffic?I have disabled ipv6 and any ip_tables modules and that has helped a bit, but it's still not very good.I suspected the network hardware and driver, but I cannot see how that would cause network traffic problems.I wonder if there are any X Server network settings I might check, or whether trying XFCE would be a better option over Gnome. If so, do I have get the xfce group from a CentOS Repo, or is there something better suited to RHEL?

Ubuntu :: Remote Access Without An Active Logon Session?

Oct 10, 2010

I'm in the process of converting my Windows NT server to an ubuntu server box. I've been testing the server edition in a virtual machine and I only have one problem.

My server computer doesn't have a screen and i was wondering if i can logon to the computer using remote desktop without an active logon session already in progress.

At the moment, I need to be logged on in the desktop environment before i can connect to the remote desktop service in Ubuntu. In Windows, you don't need to have an active logon session to connect remotely (so you can startup a session without needing a screen). I would like to have the same, so i don't need to run to server just to logon after restarting it.

It is probably some service i need to start on system boot, but well, i'm not that familiar yet with linux servers, at least not to do that kind of stuff.

My users would also like to have a visual interface (which is why i installed the ubuntu-desktop from the repository).
