X11 probs with os x 10.5 Leopard

Posted on 30 October 2007 by Demian Turner

In a word, Leopard is amazing and makes the Mac even more fun to use. And probably more productive too, but I guess that comes after you have fun with it. But there is one small issue to do with x11 not working properly. A bit of googling brings up this post:

But the relevant info is here, about 10k words down the page 😉

I reinstall X11 form the original leopard image. All the package X11User.pkg (hidden in /Volumes/Mac OS X Install DVD/System/Installation/Packages), X11Documentation.pkg and X11SDK.pkg from /Volumes/Mac OS X Install DVD/Optional Installs/Xcode Tools/Packages.

    I now get the following when logging into shell, very strange.

    andrew@andrew-johnstones-computer ~$ bb
    Warning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11 forwarding.
    root@bullbearings.co.uk ~

    I added these lines (from a linux box) to the /etc/ssh_config file and now X11 ssh works on Leopard

    Host *
    GSSAPIAuthentication yes
    # If this option is set to yes then remote X11 clients will have full access
    # to the original X11 display. As virtually no X11 client supports the untrusted
    # mode correctly we set this to yes.
    ForwardX11Trusted yes
    # Send locale-related environment variables
    SendEnv LANG LC_CTYPE LC_NUMERIC LC_TIME LC_COLLATE LC_MONETARY LC_MESSAGES
    SendEnv LC_PAPER LC_NAME LC_ADDRESS LC_TELEPHONE LC_MEASUREMENT
    SendEnv LC_IDENTIFICATION LC_ALL

    I installed X11 2.1.3 release, which is fairly updated, there are few changes in lib also fixed ‘login_shell’ defaults key usage when launching from the Applications menu.
