As several people have noted, you could use VNC or one of it's
spinoffs (the remote desktop applications, which I think are VNC
based). However, it is much safer to simply forward X via SSH. You
might be able to forward and entire desktop that way if that is what
you want (I don't know how, but you should be able to google it easily
enough). Forwarding single applications is very easy, as I mentioned
