Hi all,

I download  IGV (http://www.broadinstitute.org/igv/projects/downloads/IGV_2.3.40.zip) onto  the server I am using and uzip it. In the folder which IGV_2.3.40.zip was unzipped, I typed the command "java -Xmx750m -jar igv.jar" to try if it works or not as guided in the "readme.txt" file. and the error showed below.  I don't know what's wrong. Any help is very welcome! Thanks!

use -X while logging in to server and start IGV. e.g.:

ssh username@server -X

What is the option -X for ?  Can you explain  a bit more? I could  log in,  I just could not run the software......  Thanks!
