I would like to log in to the vero4k+ with ssh and enabled X11 forwarding, navigate to the thumbnails folder and display some of the thumbnail files using “display” from imagemagick. the thumbnail should be displayed on the ssh client’s xserver (my laptop).
i successfully installed imagemagick using apt.
display returns the following error:
display-im6.q16: unable to open X server ' @ error/display.c/DisplayImageCommand/433.
I am using the same .ssh/config as on my other linux servers, and there this works without a problem.
The vero4k+ machine gives me
X11 forwarding request failed on channel 0 on login, which explains why the display command wouldn’t work.
But why would the forwarding not work?
Any help appreciated…
