I am getting: Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display : for remote X
I have another machine with Gentoo on it. I am trying to connect to it with rlogin (or ssh or whatever) from 64bit Ubuntu machine.
I get "Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display :"
I have given xhost + on the Ubuntu machine and I
gave export DISPLAY=ip.of.ubuntu.machine:0.0 in Gentoo
yet I get the error message.
I don't think the problem is on the Gentoo box since I am able to login into this one from windows and I can do X-tunneling with PuTTy or directly use Exceed.
I assume the problem is on Ubuntu but where?
Hi, I think for security reasons, most of X clients on the penguins do not accept displays open.
Other solution is, make ssh X11 translucent. read
Putty:- "Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display :"
Just you need to create a launcher. I have edited menu of KDE 3.5 to add a menu Item that pointing to /usr/bin/putty.
Just click the menu It will successfully launch putty.
Thanks for your time.
