Thread: When running remote Motif apps, which copy of mwm talks to the X Server?

  1. When running remote Motif apps, which copy of mwm talks to the X Server?

    A Motif app running on a remote computer is considered an X client.
    Will it look for mwm running on the remote computer it is on, will it
    require that mwm be running on the same machine the X server is
    running on, or can it be configured to use either?

    Also, is it correct to assume that having the mwm run where the X
    Server would be more desirable for GUI responsiveness?

    Your application will interact with the window manager connected to the same
    X server. It may be executing on a different computer.

    Depends how fast is your network. For a high speed network, the difference
    may not be significant.
