Re: Maybe Off-Topic: remote Perl Gtk2 via ssh

Hello all,

iirc, the -Y (enable trusted X11 connection forwarding) has been in recent
clients only. the openssh client in mandrake 9.1 doesn;t have the option
while 10(& cooker) have it.

as a rule, i use ssh -XY hostname whenever the -Y option is available.

The program '' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)'.

Is there any reason why I shouldn't be able to forward Perl Gtk2 apps
via ssh? It seems a little strange that I can run some gtk2 apps but
not this one.

Are you running ssh on gentoo? If so, try using "ssh -Y" instead of
"ssh -X". I think I got similar errors running Evolution over the
network. The errors disappeared when I started using the -Y option. I
have no idea why this works - the guy at work that recommended it to
me didn't know either.

Bye, Rich =]

Yes I am actually.
And yes that fixes it too.
