good. Just to close this out, instead of always having to type -X, edit
(if you have admin privileges) /etc/ssh/ssh_config (which governs the
system-wide behavior of your ssh client - don't confuse with
sshd_config) and change and uncomment the line

ForwardX11 yes

to make it a system-wide default on your client. In order to make it the
default just for your account, edit or create the file ~/.ssh/config and
add that line there.
