I cannot get X11 forwarding to work using mpirun. I've tried all of the
standard methods, such as setting pls_rsh_agent = ssh -X, using xhost,
and a few other things, but nothing works in general. In the FAQ,
http://www.open-mpi.org/faq/?category=running#mpirun-gui, a reference is
made to other methods, but "they involve sophisticated X forwarding
through mpirun", and no further explanation is given. Can someone tell
me what these other methods are or point me to where I can find info on
them? I've done lots of google searching and havn't found anything
useful. This is a major issue since my parallel code heavily depends on
having the ability to open X windows on the remote machine. Any and all
help would be appreciated!
  Thanks!
