Let's say you have 2 computers:


Let's say cpu1's screen is left to cpu2's screen.

Let's say you want to control cpu1 from cpu2.

Let's assume both computers have the same username.

  1. install x2x on cpu1
  2. enter on cpu2
ssh -X user@cpu1 'x2x -west -to :0'

and leave terminal open.

And that's it!
