Is this possible? I already tried using ssh -X user@host, and while there were no errors, it still wouldn't allow me to edit my files via ssh.

Is there anything else I can try?

is it a permissions issue? use gksudo? – Reuben L. May 8 '12 at 5:51

You can use sshfs to access the file and use gedit locally. Or you can use vim/emacs/nano. Dreamhost likely blocks X-forwarding, however.

+1 for vim/nano and that other thing. – RedGrittyBrick Sep 3 '11 at 20:48
