[SLUG] X Display


hi guys

situation: someone who wants to run a X client application on another machine to connect to the X server on their workstation.

is there any way to remove the need for them to telnet/ssh in to the client machine and run "command --display hostname:0" manually?

ie. somehow automate that process so that the user only has to click on a launcher in their task bar.

would making the "command" of the launcher be "ssh clientname 'command --display hostname:0'" work?

TIA
Martin
