It is also possible to run graphical programs remotely using VNC.  This is a popular tool that lets you run a VNC server on the remote linux server and connect to it using a VNC client on your local system.  There is more information about this option in Using VNC via ssh tunneling.

Alternate Method


Using Research Desktop (RED) at IU

If you have an account on the Carbonate system you can also use Research Desktop (RED) at IU.  This allows you to get a graphical desktop on the Carbonate system and, from there, you could use "ssh -Y" to connect to some other remote linux system and run your GUI programs from there.
