Unix Question: displaying linux applications running remotely under mavericks

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

I recently upgraded to mavericks and have had a few issues.  Some of them is I am having problems displaying linux applications running remotely.

 

I used to do the following in a terminal window:

> ssh me@linuxcomp -X

> run_program

 

and the program would run on the linux machine and its display would appear on my mac.  

 

This doesn't work for me anymore.  Can someone please help.

 

Thanks.

You might need to install XQuartz (http://xquartz.macosforge.org/landing/), which implements X11 on the Mac. Apple stopped bundling XQuartz with OS X after Snow Leopard.
