At University and on my home computer, I use a program called PuTTY to SSH connect to lcpu.bath.ac.uk (a linux server), and I use the program Xming to display visible elements, such as java and python GUIs and the like.
Basically I'm wondering what the process is to do this with XQuartz. When I try I get told I have no Display variable set, and I've googled for a while but I can't find a solution (most things also talk about X11, but I'm on Mountain Lion so the replacement is XQuartz).
This problem was solved on Windows by introducing Xming, so is there such a solution on Mac?
Thank you in advance!
