X Into Z
« on: June 15, 2007, 06:28:27 pm »
I saw a few mentions of using other devices as clients for the Z.  I've done X forwarding of applications to my desktop, and of course vnc, and X indirect/xdmcp stuff on desktops. How are people forwarding the full Z xdesktop to other machines? Is there a preferred, lowest overhead/lowest hassle method?  Is it simply a matter of running gdm? or xdm? and editing the conf files?
Info appreciated.

The easiest way to use the Z over ssh on another machine is to issue "xinit" from the command-line on the other computer, then type "ssh -l username -Y ip.of.zaurus", enter your password etc., and then type startx. This should provide the full Z desktop over ssh. You need to enable X forwarding in /etc/ssh/sshd_config on the Z for this to work.

Using full desktop environments from other computers on the Z is more difficult since xinit does not work (at least for me). I haven't really played with it much, but there may be a way with a .xinitrc file that only opens an xterm.

Thanks I was looking at doing indirect via gdm--- this is noticeably better
