Unix Tip #4565- September 10, 2017

SET REMOTE DISPLAY QUICKLY


If the environment and home directory structure
are centralized, then build a set of alias tables
for setting the display for all remote machines
that may get logged into remotely or administrate
remotely. In the long run it will save time.

alias 'setwad setenv DISPLAY wad:0'
alias 'setspot setenv DISPLAY spot:0'
alias 'settrash setenv DISPLAY trash:0'

NOTE: All tips provided are USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Tips are submitted by various unix admins around the globe. UGU suggest you read and test each tip in a non-volitile environment before placing into production.
