    How do you start X over SSH?
    from a running X session, simply open a terminal (xterm etc) and run:
    Code:
    ssh -X myotherhost
    # after logging into the other host, run from your ssh session:
    echo $DISPLAY # should read localhost:10.0 or something, which is forwarded over the ssh link
    xmessage hi # should appear on your X screen
    or as a one-liner:
    Code:
    ssh -X myotherhost xmessage hi
    for further reading I refer you to `man ssh` and google.

      OK, that works perfectly, but I remember seeing someone export DISPLAY, and then getting the X session up from the remote host.
