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.
OK X11 is not installed, but it is also not needed (so your answer is kind of misleading). I am talking about an x-client connecting the ssh x11-proxy to connect to the x-server on my laptop. It suffices that the laptop has an x-server, the osmc box does need one for this.
It suffices to install xauth and to enable X11 forwarding for sshd: sudo apt install xauth sudo nano /etc/ssh/sshd_config X11Forwarding yes
