    Can't export X desktop from Suse + Kde to Win2K box


    Hello,

    The situation: KDE on Suse running on box A. Win2K on box B. I want to export the desktop session from box A to box B. Specifically, I want the entire desktop to appear on my Win2K box when I fire up X-win32. I have thrown my hands up trying to figure this one out. None of the docs online speak about Suse specifically. It is absolutely impenitrable.

    I did this with a RedHat box, no prob. Suse? I'm stumped.

    Please help!

    Thanks,
    Doug

    first, export your DISPLAY variable to the windows IP address like this:
    `export DISPLAY=192.168.0.1:0` then run the session you want, like `gnome-session` or `kde-session` (I am not sure about the second one, i don't use KDE). You can also run single programs like `xdm` the x display manager, that will allow that computer to log people in like usual, `xterm` that will present a terminal application on the windows XDesktop, etc.
    I respectfully decline the invitation to join your delusion.
