I have an lubuntu server that I want to access from my Mint 15 computer. I set up X11 forwarding according to all the information I could find, and there is a probalem I don;t know how to google for.
I can ssh -X (or -Y) into the server. While in the desktop environment of my Mint computer (tried frm tty 1 and it wouldn't work at all) I ssh into the server and run a program that requires X. I get an unfamiliar, fullscreen, graphical login screen for mint, with my mint computer login name. I try a wrong password and it says wrong password. I try the correct password and everything goes black for a second and I am returned to the mint desktop except all the windows I had opened are closed (including the terminal I was ssh'ing from).
Why is Mint asking me to log in if I am already ssh'd into the lubuntu server? What is this log in screen and how do I get the graphical output from the server on my computer?
Thanks for reading,
