On your client, have you got "ForwardX11 yes" ?
In other words, if you ssh into the remote box, does "echo $DISPLAY"
show what you expect? And can you then bring up an xterm?

All, Does anyone have nxserver working with SUSE 10.2?


Thanks for the thought, but I'm pretty sure that is not the problem.

nxserver/freenx has the freenx client do a ssh login as the user "nx"
and then I have nxserver configured to do a su to the real user and
launch KDE. I'm pretty sure ForwardX11 does not need to be
explicitely set for the freenx client because FreeNX is a custom ssh
client provided exclusively to work with the nxserver and initiate the
ssh connection and handle X graphics. (Also I don't see a way to set
it in the freenx config screens.)
