LibraOffice not running over ssh -Y
So my first approach was to use VNC to access a server and run some applications on a laptop with a very small ssd. But I found I can use SSH to pretty much do the same thing, so I have been working on that. In the process I have found not all programs will run the way I expect. Examples:
ssh XYZ@192.168.1.10 -Y gimp.
This works great. gimp runs on the 1.10 machine and I see the screen on the machine I ssh from. No problems and good repsonse.
ssh XYZ@192.168.1.10 -Y libreoffice
Not so much. I get the small rectangle flash screen on the machine I ssh from, then the actual screen opens on the server and the machine I am using gets the terminal screen with a flashing cursor.
ssh XYZ@192.168.1.10 -Y inkscape
This one is even worse. It starts and displays on the 1.10 machine, but absolutely nothing on the ssh machine terminal window but a flashing cursor.
So, anyone have any suggestions as to what I might try to get these two running remotely?
