I meant in the ssh localhost test case that you showed. But still, even in the remote case, the "X server" would be your local machine and the X api calls from matlab would be routed to your local X server (wayland or xorg) through the ssh connection.
So, just to clarify, matlab works on your localhost when ssh is not used? I.e., just opening a terminal and running "matlab" followed by the plot command? And if you repeat the above but first do a "ssh -X localhost", i.e., the DISPLAY variable is something other than just ":0", then it doesn't work? Both scenarios above stay the same regardless if you are using wayland or xorg in Ubuntu Artful? -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Bugs, which is subscribed to Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1726595 Title: Running Matlab (R) from ssh session with X forwarding doesn't work anymore in 17.10 To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/openssh/+bug/1726595/+subscriptions -- ubuntu-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-bugs
