Ok so first in issh go to general settings and turn on xserver.
Connect to urself.
Make sire u put the 2 lines needed to start etter in a sh file and set it to chmod 0777.
Once u start the script hit the x on the top right then hit the x on the top roght again in the second screen.
anyway, i have ./etter.sh and in it:
then i login as root, ./etter.sh, and switch to the x screen that issh has built in:)
works for xterm too!
however, pango gives errors that no default font is set, and it might be "ugly"...and ugly it is, only blocks where letters should be...see my last post.
