I am trying to access MESA-r6794 remotely: ssh -Y username at remotemachine.edu
MESA runs successfully on both machines locally.
When I use my laptop to run MESA on the remote machine, i get the following error regarding PGPLOT.
PGPLOT /xw: cannot connect to X server 
PGSTAR: failed to open /xwin
please check that X Window System is running
and that you have set the environment variables
and also that you have set PGPLOT_DIR and PGPLOT_FONT
Abundance ierr -1
init_pgstar ierr -1
onScreen_Plots ierr -1
update_pgstar_plots ierr -1
Here are some echoes:
kleiner:1M_pre_ms_to_wd jgoldstein$ echo $DISPLAY
kleiner:1M_pre_ms_to_wd jgoldstein$ echo $PGPLOT_DEV
kleiner:1M_pre_ms_to_wd jgoldstein$ echo $PGPLOT_DIR
kleiner:1M_pre_ms_to_wd jgoldstein$ echo $PGPLOT_FONT
I have also tried running from the remote machine making sure x11 was already running on my local machine.
