Re: Remote X sessions (remote desktops?)
- I used the hint below on Xnest to get kde desktop on cygwin running
on windows xp.
$Xnest -geometry 1250x950 :2 & ; this causes a new window to open up
with a separate X server/client, but without a window manager.
(executing kdestart main cygwin console caused fvwm to be used. Some
icons were missing on kde panel and windows)
launched a xterm in the Xnest window
$xterm -display :2 &
in this xterm, connected to remote linux computer using ssh with X
After getting secure connection, I executed kdestart on the remote
computer. This caused kde associated window manager to be launched.
kde desktop is displayed properly on client computer.
