From my desktop, I can get to my wife's machine on the lan using:
ssh -X firstname.lastname@example.org. Both systems are running the desktop flavour of Ubuntu 9.10-64bit.
But here is the problem: When I try to run X apps like
gedit, it fails with the following error message on the remote end of the ssh connection: "
X11 connection rejected because of wrong authentication".
The strange thing is, if I run the app with "
sudo" such as "
sudo gedit" then everything works fine: I get the X application forwarded through my ssh connection and showing up on my desktop, even though it is actually running on the remote machine.
What have I missed, or where do I check to see exactly what permission failure is giving me problems when running as non-sudo?
