If I run ssh -X server lxterminal I get a new terminal window open on my local desktop that I can then launch new applications on the server from (similarly to the old xrsh application, except using a secure tunnel so I don't have to be on the same trusted LAN). I have X2Go server installed on the same server, and the client on my local machine, but when I use it it runs a window manager on the remote server and creates a top-level window to contain all the windows created. How can I configure it to behave the same as just using ssh -X?


What you are asking for is called application mode in X2Go. In your session configuration just select application and lxterminal as the program to run.
