I'm using Geopsy or other graphical tools on a remote server through a ssh connection. I often get strange X11 error messages like:
Code: Select all
X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) Major opcode of failed request: 10 (X_UnmapWindow) Resource id in failed request: 0x139 Serial number of failed request: 33338 Current serial number in output stream: 33588 X Error: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) 3 Major opcode: 7 (X_ReparentWindow) Resource id: 0x3a
To avoid these messages and to get a nicer graphical user interface, you must disable the X11 security extension controls on your local X11 server. This is possible with option '-Y' rather than simply '-X' (see ssh man page for details). You can enable this behaviour by default if you add the 'ForwardX11Trusted yes' to your /etc/ssh/ssh_config (see ssh_config man page for details). More information can be obtained from http://openssh.com/faq.html#3.13.
Kindly suggested by Pierre Gouedard (LGIT).
