Run eclipse on remote ubuntu 13.10 server using x11

To run eclipse from on remote ubuntu 13.10 server using x11 on local machine. 

I am assuming Jdk and eclipse is already installed. 

In addition to that you need to install few libraries on remote server. Run following command to install those libraries on remote server.

  $ sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-0:i386 libxxf86vm1:i386 libsm6:i386 lib32stdc++6 libxtst6

Once above libraries are install open another terminal and connect remote server through ssh with -X option

#From local machine
$ ssh <username>@<remote machine ip> -X

Now you can start the eclipse from this ssh session

#From local machine
$ cd <to location where eclipse is installed>
$ ./eclipse
