I noticed when working on a Solaris 11 Intel machine that x11-forwarding works a bit differently than in Linux apparently. My benchmark is always: if I can run xclock on the server, and the xclock window opens on my client (desktop) machine, then X11 screen forwarding works.
However, Oracle’s installation GUIs for Fusion Middlware don’t adhere to that rule on Solaris 11. Although xclock opens prefectly, these “GUIs made in Java” don’t. Normally I’m not scared of command line interfaces, but these Fusion Middleware CLIs are a thing apart
The solution is simple: you’ll need these libraries/packages on Solaris, and then everything works perfectly:
Install them using:
pkg install <package>
as root of course.X11-forwarding of OFM installation GUIs in Solaris 11 Intel,
