X11 programs

X11 for Windows and Mac

X11 is a remote-display protocol used by Linux/Unix machines, including the Linux machines at Thayer. By running an X11 program (known as a server) on your computer, you can access graphical Linux programs remotely through an SSH client. In addition some *nix applications ported to macOS do not run natively under the macOS GUI and require X11.

Terminology Note: The program displaying graphics on your local machine is called an X Server, and the process on the remote end is called an X client. Yes, this may be backwards from what you might first expect.  You can think of this program providing local graphics services for client programs running remotely.

Windows

  • Xming Open-source, free, and full-featured.

macOS

To install X11 on macOS, download and install the XQuartz Application from: www.xquartz.org

FastX

Another method for accessing graphical programs remotely from our Linux compute servers is FastX. This program allows you to run a full remote desktop which can be disconnected and reconnected while graphical applications continue to run. FastX  can also be much faster that X11 forwarding, especially over slower connections. For more information about downloading and setting up FastX, see this page: FastX

Guide to X11/Starting Programs

Starting Programs[edit | edit source]

The traditional Unix method of starting a program is call it from the shell by entering its name on the command line. For example:

$ emacs

At the beginning of the X Window System, the method to start an X11 client was essentially the same. You would always have an XTerm open, so you could enter commands to open Emacs, Netscape, and other XTerms. Of course, this meant that if you closed (or xkilled) an XTerm, you would "hang up" all programs started from it, thus causing them to quit and disappear suddenly. So you had to remember to leave open the XTerm from which you started the clients.

Such behaviour is the function of launching programs in the foreground, which makes it dependent on the shell/terminal window (xterm, rxvt, or some other) being open and working.

To launch multiple windowed programs independent of the shell window (that is, in the background), attach an ampersand at the end of each command:

$ xclock &

[edit | edit source]

Some window managers added a feature called the minicli, for MINIature Command LIne. You choose "Run Command" from some menu, then type the name of a program, such as "emacs". This solved the problem of having extra XTerms (or Konsoles, et cetera) open just to start some programs. However, it introduced another problem: some programs print error messages to the terminal, and you might need to retrieve the error message if you wonder why your program is crashing or not starting. The solution is to log to some file, such as , when starting your session. Most implementations of X do this automatically.

Many window managers also allow to start programs from menus. However, different window managers have different methods of configuration. There are some attempts at a solution such that you can use the same menu in different window managers. The GNOME and KDE desktop environments currently use a common file format to indicate a menu item.

KDE typically provides a K menu in the lower left corner of the screen. GNOME typically provides menus like "Applications" in the upper left corner. Both environments can be customised. Some window managers, like twm and IceWM, let you click on the desktop background to summon the menu.

Specifying window geometry[edit | edit source]

In X, it's typically easy to set a program window's size and position by specifying the parameter with the following value syntax —

[{WIDTH}][x{HEIGHT}][{+-}{XOFF}[{+-}{YOFF}]]
or horizontal axis handles top-to-bottom and reverse directions; or vertical axis is for left-to right and reverse directions. Plus (+) and minus (-) signs before XOFF/YOFF correlate to edges of origin: + is the amount of pixels off the left/top edge; - is the number of pixels off the right/bottom edge.

Example with xeyes:

$ xeyes -geometry 100x100-37+50 &

— Where xeyes opens with the size of 100x100 pixels, at 37 pixels from right– and 50 pixels from top of the screen. The ampersand (&) backgrounds the process (frees xeyes from the terminal).

The -geometry parameter can be used both in the shell and from within the X menu system and menu systems of other windowing environments.

Caveats[edit | edit source]

Setting window geometry might not or won't work with programs that don't recognise the specification, such as Mozilla Firefox and Wine; Firefox uses its own command-line settings, and Wine launches more than one window with at least one of them not being native to X.

While most window managers and desktop environments support the specification, some might not.

Using X11 for GUI interaction

On all WestGrid systems it is possible to use programs that have a graphical user interface (GUI) and display the results on your local computer monitor. This page guides you through the set up of such an environment on WestGrid systems. In order to set up such an environment, you will need to take the following steps:

  1. Run an X Window display server (X server) program on your local computer. You start up such a program and leave it running in the background.
  2. Connect to the WestGrid machine of your choosing through your normal ssh terminal program, with X11 forwarding enabled. This establishes the X11 connection between the WestGrid machine and your local computer.
  3. Start the GUI application (e.g. gnuplot) on the WestGrid machine. The graphical output of the program will display on your desktop.
  4. Interact with the GUI application using your mouse and keyboard. Your keyboard and mouse commands will be relayed in the other direction, allowing to interact with the running application on the WestGrid system.

These steps are detailed below. If you want more information on using GUI applications and/or performing more sophisticated visualizations of your data using WestGrid systems, please refere to the WestGrid Visualization page and/or the WestGrid Visualization QuickStart page.

Running an X Windows server

Commercial X Window display servers are available but most users can get by with free programs. Linux users will find the X Window support already installed with most distributions. If not, installing X on a Linux machine should be straightforward. Please refer to your Linux distribution's documentation to learn more.

Installing X11 on OS X depends on the version of OS X that you are running. Is OS X 10.4 X11 is included on the System Disk but not installed by default. In OS X 10.7 X11 was installed by default and no additional work was required. In OS X 10.8 and 10.9 X11 is not installed and you have to download and install it as an external package. This package can be downloaded from the XQuartz page.

On Microsoft Windows it is necessary to download and install an X11 package. One option for Microsoft Windows that is used by the WestGrid support team is Xming. If installing Xming, you should also install the optional font package. If your graphics hardware does not work well with Xming, you could try Xming-mesa, from the same site.

No matter which platform you are using, it is necessary to start the X Server software running in the background before you start any aplications on the remote WestGrid machine. How you start the X Server will depend on the platform you are using. For OS X and Windows, it is usually simply a matter of starting the X Server application. NOTE: It may be difficult to tell that the X Server is running on OS X and Windows, with the only visual notification that the X Server is running being an icon in the application tray in the bottom right corner of your screen (Windows) or the icon bar at the top right of your screen (OS X).

Connecting using SSH X forwarding

Once the X Server is running it is necessary to connect to the WestGrid machine of your choice. This is typically done through a command line terminal window that supports the secure shell (SSH) protocol. If you are connecting to WestGrid systems already, then you are already using such a program. Linux and Mac OS X users can typically use the built-in terminal programs, whereas Microsoft Windows users often install an additional SSH client, such as PuTTY. For more information on setting up your computer for use within the WestGrid environment, please refer to the WestGrid Quickstart Guide for New Users.

PuTTY configuration for X11 forwardingIn order to use X11 remotely, it is necessary to enable X11 forwarding on your SSH client. This is straightforward using OS X and Linux. You simply add the -Y or -X command line options to your ssh command as follows:

ssh -X [email protected] (Linux)

ssh -Y [email protected] (OS X)

On Windows it is necessary to configure your SSH client software to enable X11 forwarding. Using PuTTY this is done by loading a client configuration through the PuTTY GUI, choosing the X11 branch of the configuration tree, and choosing the "Enable X11 forwarding" box. Once the configuration is saved, every time you use that configuration X11 forwarding will be enabled.

Starting a GUI application

In order to start a GUI application on a WestGrid system that you have connected to as above, you simply have to type the name of the GUI application on the command line of your ssh terminal program. The best way to test that your connection is working is to start a terminal program such as xterm. When the application is started, the GUI for the program should appear on the desktop of your local computer. In the case of xterm, a new terminal window should appear on your desktop. In this manner, it is simple to start a wide range of programs, including GUI text editors (e.g. nedit), plotting programs (e.g. gnuplot), or visualization applications (e.g. Paraview).

Interacting with the GUI application

Interacting with the GUI application is straightforward. The application will behave "almost" like it is running on your desktop, with the keyboard and mouse functioning as you would expect.

It is worth noting that although using X11 to interact with a GUI application can be very useful, the X11 protocol is not particularly well suited to interacting with applications over long distances, in particular where the network performance may be limited. Using X11 remotely to connect from an institution (e.g. SFU) to a machine nearby (e.g. orcinus @ UBC) will perform relatively well. Connecting from UVic to the University of Manitoba will be significantly slower and connecting to a computer from your home to a remote WestGrid site will be slower still.

If you are interested in this and other options to effectively visualizing your data, please refer to the WestGrid Visualization Quickstart page.

How to Use X11 Forwarding on Windows or Linux

Previous - Terminal Services
X11 - X windowing system
screen shots

X11 is a network protocol designed for Unix and similar operating systems to enable remote graphical access to applications. The original X windowing system was announced in 1984 and developed at MIT.

A machine running an X windowing system can launch a program on a remote computer. All the CPU processing happens on the remote computer but the display of the application appears on the local machine.

For a time it was popular to have dedicated "X terminals". Similar to a character cell terminal these terminals had no "brains" except for what was needed to operate their X windowing system. Such terminals started to disappear as personal desktop computers became popular, more powerful, and inexpensive enough to run an X windowing system on top of the installed OS (or to have the applications ported to run locally on the personal computer). Interestingly, today the popularity of similar terminals is slowly picking up again as large businesses realize the need for easily maintainable, interchangeable "thin clients".

Although X terminals really did not catch on, the X windowing system did become the standard graphical system for graphical programs running in Unix and Linux environments. These systems use the X11 protocol to draw graphics to their local video display. The local display is treated as a remote display that just happens to be on the same machine.

X-windowing applications can still be run remotely, but people usually don't do that. This functionality is also usually restricted these days due to security reasons. Because of the way it works, if there were no security someone else on a network could start an application that displays on your display!


This screen shot shows a DOS based X-windowing system called Deskview. Can you tell which apps are running locally under Deskview and which are running on a remote Solaris (Unix) server?

In this picture the only applications that are running locally on the computer the Remote Program Launcher, the AppManager and the DeskView window manager. The rest are X11 apps that are running on a remote Solaris server. Notice that the local window manager draws the title bars and border for all applications even if they are running remotely.

No, there was never a version of Netscape for DeskView. The unix versions of Netscape happen to use X11 and therefore their displays can be exported to other client machines running an X-windowing system such as DeskView.

(Just a technical note: The software run on client computers is technically referred to as an X "Server" due to the way it operates. Since people find this confusing and and I am trying to be mostly non technical here I will not refer to it as such)


Here is another example of a client machine running an X-windowing system. This client computer happens to be running Windows while the application being displayed (Netscape again) is actually running on a Linux server.


The X-Windowing system is used by other operating systems besides Unix OSes and Linux. This screen shot shows X applications running on a VMS VAX system. Although uncommon, it is even possible for X windowing application programs to exist under Microsoft Windows.

Although graphics and widgets are drawn as instructed by the server, fonts must be loaded on the client computer or X terminal. Like a web browser, if a specific font is not present, an alternative will be substituted.


This is a screen shot of an older version of Linux using an X windowing system to display its own applications. In this case the display is a standard local video system in the computer the applications and Linux are running on.


Linux and X11 applications have come a long way. Here is an example of a modern Linux desktop that uses the X11 X windowing system.

The X windowing system does not provide any form of printing redirection. Printing is handled completely separately in Unix / Linux.


I would also like to mention the Sunray terminal, which is Sun's answer to X terminals.

Sunrays act much like X terminals, however they do not use the X11 protocol. Instead they use a Sun proprietary protocol that currently only works with Sun Solaris. Of course they can be used with other remote applications if the appropriate client software is installed on the Solaris Sunray server.

Sunrays have several advantages over traditional X terminals: They can bring application audio to the local machine. Entire desktop sessions can be resumed from a different terminal, and the use of  "smart cards" can make moving from one terminal to another easier.

View graphical UNIX programs on your computer

This article describes the steps necessary to install X server software on your home computer. This will enable you to display windows and graphics created by applications running on remote UNIX systems.

Windows X11 Forwarding

When you run an X server and an SSH client, you will launch programs from the SSH window and the X server will be display them See these instructions for information on downloading and installing SSH software.

Your Windows SSH client must be configured to forward X Window System communication (i.e., graphical windows) from the machine you are connecting to to your PC's display. In Putty, click on the plus sign to the left of "SSH" in the left hand pane, then click "X11" and check the box labelled "Enable X11 Forwarding". With MobaXterm you can also easily forward graphical windows.

Windows: Xming

Xming is the X Windows Software from X.Org ported to Microsoft Windows. It shares source code with Cygwin's X server (see below), but you do not need the full cygwin environment to run it. You can use this X server in much the same way you use eXceed, though it does not come with many of the features of eXceed. If, for some reason, eXceed becomes unavailable to you, try this software. It can be downloaded from http://www.straightrunning.com/XmingNotes/.

macOS XQuartz

XQuartz is an open source version of the X11.app application that used to come preinstalled on macOS.

Mac X11 Forwarding

For forwarding remote X sessions over ssh you can use either Terminal.app (also found in ) or xterm. If you are using the Mac OS X Terminal, you will need to set your DISPLAY variable. Enter this statement into the file :

and then start a new Terminal window. If you are using xterm, the variable should be set for you.

On the Mac you should also use the -X and -Y options:
