I am currently using my pi2 as a face-recognition log in system, written in python, which is mounted on the wall on the other side of the room.
I am trying to be able to connect to it via putty, over wifi and work with the program remotely.
The pi is connected to a HDMI monitor to display information, however when I log into the pi via putty and run "STARTLXDE" a blank desktop loads, with no processes running. I assume this is a completely different X GUI accessing the file system, then the one that normally runs on the pi (with startx).
My question is: How can I remote to the normal desktop that is running my script over WiFi, preferably via putty and ssh (As I want to avoid tightVNC, so please don't suggest it)
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
I don't know if this is important but (more information > less information)..
I am using Raspbian and the desktop that comes up in xming looks suspiciously like NOOBS.
I am using X11 port forwarding
