Fixing X “Can’t connect to Display” errors

A Stock Mepis install will NOT permit X clients running on a remote host to display on your X session, even if one does a “xhosts +”. To fix this, I had to go into “/etc/kde3/kdm/Xservers” and replace “-nolisten tcp” with “-ac” for each display line being used. Also do a search for files containnig “nolisten tcp” within /etc for any others – an older version of mepis has another file under /etc/X11/.. that had to be changed too.
