X11 Forwarding via AmiCygnix?

A few ignorant questions from me on AmiCygnix:
* Is there a terminal that comes with it eg. xterm. I have looked but have not found anything yet.
* I would like to X11 forward from my Linux machine. If there is a terminal will it support ssh -X? I have tried exporting the DISPLAY variable via sshterm on the Amiga side but that failed.

Hi.
There is no terminal for Amicygnix but you should be able to X11 forward some stuff from your linux machine.
Here is a screenshot i made in 2012 with xterm.

I'm not an linux expert and i do not remember any more how i did it but it should be doable even today.
I might have some clues somewhere on my hdd.

No, there is no terminal available for AmiCygnix so far.


The easiest way to launch a Linux application on an AmiCygnix display is this:

1. To add permission to run an application on (e.g.) AmiCygnix display 0, add a new line to "Cygnix:CygnixPPC/etc/X0.hosts" and add the IP of your Linux machine.

2. Launch the application (e.g. xterm) like this on your Linux machine:

xterm --display=Amiga-IP:0

Thanks. Point 1 is what I was missing. I was after a terminal to either try and ssh -X or do an xhost + command.

With point 1 I have been able to retarget a few applications as part of my testing.
