Maybe should put a note for people using csh-shells and ssh, something

If you are running ssh, DISPLAY might already be set, try echo
$DISPLAY... if it is set to something like localhost:something you
don't need to worry. If not, xhost+should also be set for the local

Use "DISPLAY=foo; export.." if you are running bash/zsh or "setenv
DISPLAY foo" if you are running csh, like tcsh and so on.

BTW on point 2, shouldn't it be "xhost + remote..." instead of "xhost


 The eye of the beholder rests on the beauty!
