    Screen and X11 forwarding


    Hi, I want to know if the following is possible, using screen & x11 forwarding to run a remote GUI. If the x11 connection over ssh is broken I want to be able to log back in, type screen -r and redisplay the GUI to the user?

    I have tested with xclock and I have noticed the following:
    - I log in and run screen
    - I then type xclock & the GUI is displayed.
    - I then make the connection and relog in and reattach to the console,
    but the GUI does not auto. reappear. But when I do a ps, xclock is still running.

    Is there away to get the GUI to auto. reappear?
    Thanks.

    "make the connection" should be "brake the connection"
