I have added:  "xhost +xxx.xx.xxx.xx > /dev/null" into the .bashrc of the machine I want to display the picture.  Where xxx.xx.xxx.xx is the Ip address of the machine with the picture.  

If I'm on the machine with the picture, how would I display this picture remotely on the machine with the modified .bashrc.

I have done it before but I can't remember how.

I get the following error:  xv: Can't open display

Does xv have to be installed on the machine that I want the picture displayed or just on the machine I am executing the command?  If xv has to be installed is there an alternative?

Is putting the "xhost +xxx.xx.xxx.xx > /dev/null" in the .bashrc file of the user logged in enough to get this to work?
