remotely controlling the screen from gdm under linux
Posted on 2006-04-10
I have a remote box.
The only way I know of to get it to display is to sit in front of it, log in.
Then I type
to allow myself to display to it.
Then I remote ssh to it, set display:
and run my graphical code.
I would prefer to log into the box (as root if necessary) and force the machine to recognize me as the one logged into the console. What do I do to make this happen?
When I log into the box from the console, even if I am remote, it doesn't recognize my authority, because the direction is reverse -- my login has been granted permission to display on my remote screen, not on the box I'm on.
