I installed the X server package on the remote machine and that solved
the problem. It's pretty silly, as the remote machine might not even
have a physical screen attached, but it solved the problem. I assume
because the X application I'm running uses fonts from a local source I
I don't understand this fully. I've red somewhere that X applications
use a font server. Do they connect to this font server over the same
connection as the X server? Thus, if I use a putty X tunnel, does that
tunnel provide a path to the font server as well?
