How to start Gnome GUI in Xming over SSH

Sometimes it is necessary to start a desktop or graphical environment for certain tasks. In this case we will use a desktop on Solaris using Xming. Xming is a free tool to use X  Terminal on Windows.

 

 

We will use Putty as SSH protocol support. Since Xming can launch the desktop directly to the XLaunch setting it, but here we will launch the desktop from a console, so we must launch the command below, once we are already connected to the machine.

 

/usr/bin/gnome-session

 

This command will initiate a desk.
