Get x11 forwarding setup in windows (I'm using git-bash) (should be similar for cygwin) (do not use putty)
  • Install Xming:
  • Set your path variable: export PATH=$PATH:/c/Users/myself/AppData/Local/Xming/
  • [always?]: Run XLaunch and select the display setting you want to use
  • Export DISPLAY variable: export DISPLAY=localhost:0
  • ssh with the x11 forwarding enabled: ssh -XY me@myhost
  • Try it out: nautilus
