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 3173/run-application-on-local-machine-and-show-gui-on-remote-display for using ssh -X or -Y to the server. You have to arrange for your X server to listen for remote connections I think. > b) Do I need any particular Linux distribution / GUI version to > run the BaseX Linux GUI? No. I use Mageia Linux under Gnome 3, but as Christian said, you just need Java.
