I didn’t want to create a full environment for my project, because of netbook capacity and because i won’t really program from here very often.
So i decided to use the ssh X forwarding facility. This way i could run my main computer eclipse in my netbook.
The Steps followed were very simple:
First on main computer:
- install openssh
- edit file /etc/ssh/sshd_config and make sure there is a non-commented line like X11Forwarding yes
That’s it for the main computer (Where eclipse really resides)
Then in my netbook i did:
- Open A terminal and execute:
ssh -X firstname.lastname@example.org /home/cscarioni/programas/eclipse/eclipse
Where /home/cscarioni/programas/eclipse/eclipse is where eclipse is installed on the main computer.
And that was it!!. i’m working in my home environment from my netbook.
edit: By the way in the home desktop computer xauth must be installed
