Kurumin and ssh

Following on from what I mentioned yesterday regarding not being able to open any apps (cannot connect to X server -- error) when Kurumin-Dell as client connected to Ubuntu-mac or Foresight-mac as server.
I thought perhaps this was due to Kurumin using kde 3.5.9 and the server OSes using Gnome.
However, today I tried connecting to Sidux as server (with KDE 3.5.9 and got the very same error (cannot connect to X server).
Did a bit of googling and the trick is to use this command

ssh -X 192.168.x.y app_name

with the -X switch being the one that allows you to overcome the X server problem.
Allows you to connect to Gnome in the server too.
