Unable to Export the Display

Postby elseven » Sat Feb 08, 2014 9:28 pm

I have a server (Ubuntu 13.10) that is essentially headless. It is an old laptop, so it has a screen/keyboard/mouse, but it's stored out-of-the-way and I just SSH in and use remote display as I need to use GUI stuff on it. I can't get PMS pms-1.90.1 to show the display on my client machine. I do an 'ssh -X' and then start PMS.sh with the noconsole option, but it still prints "GUI environment not available/Switching to console mode". Here is the mostly complete output (I snipped the renderer conf lines):
Code: Select all
username@myclient:~ > ssh -X myserver

I've searched the forums and found other threads, but none have a definitive answer or a confirmation that something worked. Has anyone gotten remote display to work?

edit: BTW, you can see in the above output that I ran xclock which displayed properly on my client machine.
