I frequently connect to one Linux Mint 18 machine, from Linux Mint 18, over SSH. I now have a need, without copying the files to me that is, to view pictures stored on the remote machine on my desktop, not in terminal in some pseudo-image format.
What works is adding
-Y parameter to the
ssh command. So it is fine, but I don't like always appending it to the command.
I connect like this:
ssh -Y firstname.lastname@example.org
And display image as follows:
Manual only says:
-Y Enables trusted X11 forwarding. Trusted X11 forwardings are not subjected to the X11 SECURITY extension controls.
How can I set up SSH config file to make this option permanent?
