I am configuring my new 'dev-box'. I have XFCE installed, haven't logged 
in to it yet, I am using SSH across the LAN to access it for now. I 
copied my .login file from this box over there, & whenever I login over 
SSH, I get a bunch of garble about aborted X11 startup, then I am logged 
in. I attach my .login file. Is there a way to discern the type of 
login, i.e. 1st-hand on that box vs. across-the-LAN, so I can decide 
whether or not to boot up XFCE ? TIA & have a nice weekend.
