You can probably also do it the other way round, setting DISPLAY and
running BaseX on the server system with its display pointing to your
system, e.g, using an ssh tunnel so you don't need to expose your
system to the raw Internet. See e.g. https://askubuntu.com/questions/20
for using ssh -X or -Y to the server. You have to arrange for your X
server to listen for remote connections I think.

No. I use Mageia Linux under Gnome 3, but as Christian said, you just
need Java.
