Ranchers,

I have MacOSX on one of the m/c's.

I login to this m/c from my linux box using ssh. When I run a Java program from this terminal, for some reason I'm not able to get the Java graphics on to my linux terminal. I mean the Java app opens up on the MacOS normally.

Does anybody happen to know the terminal display settings that I need to make?

I tried following display settings on MacOS without any results
DISPLAY=localhost:10.0
DISPLAY=p125244:0.0 where p125244 being my linuxbox i/p

TIA
Ravi

Aqua is not X Windows. You will only be able to do what you are attempting with X Windows applications.

As far as I know, you will need to have a X server running on the Linux box and an X client on the Mac box. (Or is does the client run on the Linux box and the server on the Max box. For some reason, I think this terminology with X is backwards from what you expect.) Either way, you need to use X Windows, as Bear said above.

... and the X windows client is on the OS X developer CD, I think.
