ssh into idle ?
 
I have a desktop that is running freebsd. I ssh into this and run python from my MBPr.

I just prefer to use this older pc for python in case I mess something up. Don't want to harm my baby MBPr.

I would like to run IDLE in the ssh session. Have not been able to do this. Not sure you can run idle with ssh anyway. If anyone knows please tell me.

If I can't run IDLE with ssh is there some way I can remote desktop into this desktop? I have been just running it from the command line. But I'm in the process of installing Enlightenment Windows Manger as we speak.

Any help would be appreciated.

When you say that it doesn't work, what happens? I can't imagine IDLE causing many issues but you never know.

I'm trying to run idle from a command line only on a remote box with ssh. I think I have figured out that it needs X + a GUI configured to work. I'm just going to use my MBPr. Much easier in the long run.

Thanks Vansmith

Have you forwarded X over SSH using the -X switch? This will work if you've got the following in your /etc/ssh/sshd_config file:
Code:

X11Forwarding yes
If you've got that set, you can send IDLE over ssh to your Mac. But, you're right - this isn't going to work if IDLE doesn't already work on your FreeBSD box which will likely pull in X as a dependency.

(This is great timing - I'm in the process of learning FreeBSD myself so it's nice to see some questions that push my thinking).
