    X-Terminal Setup in Slackware


    Hi Guys,

    I read lots of tutorials and such, but I can not figure out how to setup an X-Terminal on my linux server. I got the X-Win app installed on my win laptop, so now all I need to do is configure and start xdm (I think). Well, needless to say I am a bit confused on how to do that. Could anyone point me in the right direction. The system I am running is a Slackware 10 on the server and Win XP on theclient.

    Thank you for any help,

    - Bogdan

    So you want to run X over the network? I'd suggest either investigating the Cygwin program from Windows or setting up a VNC client/server.

    cygwin with X would be a good idea. You can display things remotely by starting them with the --display option (most programs allow this). The best idea there, of course, would be to <wm> --display <IP>:0. This should start your wm on the X server running at the IP you specify.
