From the mini mac (OS X 10.7.2), I ssh -X bbl@192.168.1.9 (Ubuntu 10.04.3 LTS server) where I have imagemagick (latest) and a bunch of tools I am developing.

For the first few times that I invoke X I get a nice X window on my mini mac. But after a while I always get unable to open X server 'localhost:10.0'

I have just suffered, exited, and re-ssh'ed back in for more limited X time.

Is there a trick I am missing? This problem occurs with Xemacs, Gedit as well as more serious tools like Xeyes!

Thanks, Bradshaw (K1~TE)

I hesitate to mention that it works forever under Windows 7 Ultimate with putty.exe and XMing. as I have renounced that life style.

my guess would be unauthorized access limitations that apple might have invoked to keep you out of applications like that.

But it works for about 10 minutes on a fresh ssh login. Gedit, Xeyes, Xterm all work perfectly, but after about 10 minutes any X program fails with unable to open X server 'localhost:10.0' The terminal window works fine after that, but just fails with X.
