Why are you trying to start a window manager on the remote machine?
You only need (or can have) one per session, and in this case (as in
most cases), I would expect it to be on the machine that is running
the X server (which seems to be your Ubuntu machine).

Just log into the FreeBSD machine and run your applications; they
will be displayed on your existing X session.

Mmm, good point.

So, you're saying that although I can run things on my server,
I shouldn't have expected to get the RDP/VNC extra's (if you can call it
that) such as the menu(items), background, windowmanager, etcetera.

I basically expected the remote gnome to appear as a window that I could
throw fullscreen or have minimized.
Is that possible in any way?
