Hi all,

I download IGV onto the server I am using and unzip 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!

It's X11 forwarding, to run GUI programs from a remote machines via ssh.
