Recently the 13″ MBPr got upgrade to macOS Sierra 10.12. If I want to let it can act as remote X11 server of Ubuntu 14.04 (my main working VM in intranet), I have to install a X.Org X Window System that runs on macOS.
XQuartz is for this purpose , see https://www.xquartz.org/.
Then the file /etc/ssh/sshd_conf needs to be modified, and the ssh service needs up. After ssh to Ubuntu, there are some error/warning messages:
Last login: Thu Oct 6 14:32:12 2016 from 10.0.0.1 manpath: can't set the locale; make sure $LC_* and $LANG are correct linkirin@trusty:~$ gvim Fontconfig warning: ignoring UTF-8: not a valid region tag
To fix these, add two more lines in the file:
linkirin@trusty:~$ cat /etc/default/locale LANG="en_US.UTF-8" linkirin@trusty:~$ cat /etc/default/locale LANG="en_US.UTF-8" LANGUAGE="en_US.UTF-8" LC_ALL="en_US.UTF-8"
