X11 Forwarding, ssh

After installing ubuntu I found that I could not run X applications when logged
into remote machines via ssh. This has always worked in the past with
redhat/fedora boxes.

After a while I found that I needed to edit my /etc/ssh/ssh_config file and add
the following two lines to make it work:

Host *
   ForwardX11 yes
