    Default SSH -X

    Hi,

    I use may times "ssh -X user@ip program"
    is there a better faster program for doing that?
    the X11 preformance is to slow for some programs i uses.

    Use a remote desktop connection instead. That way if the ssh session
    drops, the program won't crash.

    You can also use compression with -C and that'll help, but I've found
    that unless on a LAN, using a remote desktop works much better.

    It also depends if the server is yours (you can enable/disable services and install programs) and which OS is running on the client (I presume it is Linux). On a Linux client, you can start an Xephyr server (same as Xnest but faster) and do a ssh -Y user@server in the window (or fullscreen) opened by Xephyr. If the server is accepting XDMCP connections, you can connect remotely with X - query (or Xephyr -query in a windows). Or you can run FreeNX or NoMachine NX on the server (if its your server).

    Setting up NX server (part I: FreeNX)
    Setting up NX server (part II: NoMachine NX)

    Here's a simple tutorial about Xephyr usage: Nested X sessions with Xephyr

    Most of the times here also
    but when doing heavy stuff like AfterShotPro or Kdenlive it's to slow
    this problem came on also with kde4......

    Remote contol is indeed a option, and runs faster.
    but what do with resolution, the server is only 1280x...
    my client is one with two screens (3840x1080)

    the -C option is already in use since kde4 introduction.

    If you use nxserver (freenx as someone else suggested), then resolution
    isn't an issue.

    I'm referring to using -C on the ssh connection, which you didn't
    indicate was in use. That's the ssh compression option.
