seeking a way to make my X forwarded session look exactly like how I have my raspbian desktop appearance on my remote host.

When I currently run ssh -XY ***.***.*.*** lxsession I get a default LXDE interface.

I would like the X session to be exactly as I have it setup locally on the host.

  • Why don't you use VNC like everyone else?

  • Because an X forwarded session is what I need for my purposes NOT VNC specifically. Appreciate your helpful response.

The answer is that, the X forwarded session appears to be persistent for my purposes. So any changes continue after reboot of either machine, disconnections, etc.
