Here's where things stand right now.

  • I have Nautilus successfully running under Mac OS X 10.8 on a Mac Mini, installed via MacPorts.

  • I am trying to pull it up on a second screen on a Raspberry Pi running Raspbian. Or really on any other computer.

  • I have been able to successfully run simple X11 apps like xeyes via X11 forwarding, so I am confident I have forwarding set up correctly.

  • When I try to run Nautilus via forwarding, I get this long list of errors. I've put it up on pastebin.

I definitely have dbus installed on the Pi, though I don't really know what it is. I'm not sure what's behind these errors or if there's anything I can do about it. Anybody have any thoughts?

Did you try: "Failed to get connection to session: Session D-Bus not running. Try running launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist.)" as it suggests? I see nothing in your post saying anything on that. – nerdwaller Aug 18 '13 at 4:14
Oops, forgot to mention that. Yes I tried that. When run on the Mac it ran without any output. On the Pi that command did not exist, and I couldn't find it in apt-cache. I think it's a Mac specific or MacPorts specific thing. – Raygan Kelly Aug 19 '13 at 12:03
Yes, launchctl is Apple's daemon initializer. – nerdwaller Aug 19 '13 at 13:23
