OS X — using X Windows with a Linux/Unix host

X Windows to a linux/unix host:

Fedora:  running SSHD with port 22 open.
* launch MAC OSX “xterm.app”
* ssh -Y -X username@

run some apps… examples:
[usern@hostne ~]# system-config-firewall   (start app in window)
[usern@hostn ~]# X                                        (msg “server is already active…”)
[usern@hostn ~]# startkde                            (launchstarfdfdfdfdfdfdf KDE desktop)

If problems, then: check the user’s $HOME/ .Xauthority file
** it might be necessary to RM the file and then TOUCH a new file.
