Running a session on an X terminal without scologin
You can run a Graphical Environment session on your X terminal without
going through the process of configuring scologin
to manage your X terminal's server. To do so:
If an .Xdefaults-hostname file
exists in your home directory on the host machine,
clients you run automatically use the resources
defined in this file.
Start a telnet session on the X terminal. Connect to
the host machine on which you want to run your Graphical Environment session.
Once you are logged into the host machine, set the
$DISPLAY environment variable to the X terminal's
For example, if your X terminal is named vortex,
you would specify:
DISPLAY=vortex:0; export DISPLAY
Run the startx script, using the -t option,
to start the session:
startx -t &
client is started, the Desktop appears, and you
can begin your session.
