using terminal to connect to another server in Ubuntu

Asked by ChrisGreenwood on 2007-03-29

Im using the terminal to connect to an ssh server but I cant display images, it says "display: unable to open X server". In windows I would have to open the X session program, but I figured it would be easier using Ubuntu. Anyone know how to do this?

If you want to forward an X session use:

ssh -X [your IP]

You can then run any app that has a GUI.

Can you help with this problem?
