Re: [Evolution] Using Evoltion on anohter machine.

Hi all,

Thanks for the replies.

After setting the $DISPLAY on the machine without Ximian, Evolution
launch fine.   However, I could NOT get evolution to run on both
machine.   Is it possible to run 2 instances of Evolution on two
different machines?

    Gnome applications that use CORBA are not very good for DISPLAY exporting. IMHO the placing of the root 
IOR in the X root window was a fatal flaw in te design of the gnome CORBA environment and means to get proper 
network display exporting working you have to enable CORBA over tcp sockets (by default its only unix domain 
sockets). Its set in /etc/orbitrc. Then you can ssh, export DISPLAY= and work without problems.
    For your own eyebrow raising experience, try doing this and then do a nmap of the machine running the 
CORBA. Swiss cheese! This is why I dont run gnome apps over the network. I've posted comment on this before 
to a more relevant mailing list, but didn't get a single response. The gnome CORBA implementations need 
serious work!
    Of course I could have your problem completely wrong!
