I'm trying to set up the backup service for a server at work. Specifically, we are using the online backup service SpiderOak. It seems like a fantastic program except for one fact: it uses a graphical interface to do all account setup and management. This isn't a problem in the long run since it runs in the background to do all backups, but right now I'm struggling to get it configured.
My server, of course, doesn't have X or any GUI installed. It seems like a no-brainer to use SSH (with the -X flag for X forwarding) from a GUI-enabled Linux workstation to set it up (in fact this is recommended in the official documentation for the program). The problem here is, it doesn't work.
This is my output:
dan@cobalt:~$ SpiderOak Fontconfig error: Cannot load default config file SpiderOak: cannot connect to X server
So, how do I forward X output from my GUIless server to my workstation?
