    Hi,
    is it possible to run a OSX GUI application from Linux via a SSH -X connection ?

    thanks,
    Tex

    <s>As long as you have X11.app installed - yes.</s> Crap, misread. No, you can't run OS X apps under Linux via ssh -X.

    Yep, but you could remote display X gui apps (e.g., the ones you install from Macports or Fink) from OS X to a Linux box.

    ok that's what I though. I guess that the Linux X cant display X application from OSX.

    Thanks

    Did you read what he said? Yes it is possible, you just need to set it up correctly.

    I recommend downloading the latest version of X11 for Mac OS X from Xquartz.
