Unix & Linux Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for users of Linux, FreeBSD and other Un*x-like operating systems.. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'd like to run the DE remotely in a window of it's own on my local workstation. When I tried the naive gnome-session from an x-window tunnel it tried to takeover my local xfce desktop, got as far as changing the wallpaper before crashing.

I am quite fond of NX. There are two sources for NX: OpenNX and Nomachine's NX. Nomachine's implementation is commercial yet free for Linux and Solaris - free as in beer. This software tunnels X over SSH, and provides an "RDP-ish" experience, with the entire desktop available in a window.
