Despite numerous problems, I managed to get X11 forwarding working from a SSH server running on a CentOS host to a Fedora client (changing various settings and finally fixing it by installing a package for authentication). The program in question is Geany. It acts as though the CTRL meta key was always pressed, not allowing me to enter characters normally.
- What can I do about this?
- What information should I provide?
Here is exactly what I mean:
ssh -XY4 -i ... user@host geany
Within Geany every keystroke is processed as if with the CTRL modifier.
