I have a home network set up in my house, and I have been playing around with remote login for a few days (as I have all IP's and passwords for the machines).
One thing that I have wanted to be able to do is use ssh with the -X or -x option to connect to X11 on a remote machine so that I can send users messages or start programs on their desktops.
Is this possible? If so, what am I doing wrong? Here's what I've been typing in at the terminal:
ssh -X email@example.com
This allows me to login to the remote machine, but will not allow me to connect to the X server.
P.S. Does it make a difference if I'm running KDE? (although I'm almost 100% sure it shouldn't)
