Enabling X11 forwarding for remote process in Juno?

#1

Is it possible to enable X11 forwarding in Juno? Currently, there seems no option for it in settings. I wonder is it a quick change to add this option. Probably not very difficult for Linux?

My use case is that my code uses ImageView. And I want to run it remotely. I tested it works when using ssh with -X in a terminal, but crashes when running in Juno. It would be great if Juno exposes such an option.

This is not an answer to your question, but you can try to run remote julia on local Atom/Juno. You can install ftp-remote-edit in Atom, then configure your remote server and you can run remote Julia on your local Atom/Juno. I have been using this way with my VPS server and it seems to work faster and more stable than ssh/X-forwarding.

There’s an open feature request for this – so yes, it should definitely be possible but I haven’t looked into it much.

Thanks for the reply. I think this is what I am using. Works great for me too, just lack of GUI forwarding
