How to: Running the ByteBlower configurator over ssh from Mac OS X
Posted by Admin Kayako, Last modified by Dries Decock on 03 April 2018 02:04 PM

The ByteBlower Configurator is a minimal GUI allowing users to easily configure the ByteBlower server. This minimal GUI can even be run over SSH.
 In most cases, nothing needs to be done but Mac OS X users can encounter an issue where the GUI does not start.

The reason for this issue is the TERM environment variable. The ssh client on Mac OS X defines this variable as xterm-256color. The current ByteBlower OS does not recognize this value and won't start.

To fix this, the following commands will do the trick:

export TERM=xterm; byteblower-configurator

This will start the ByteBlower configurator in a normal way.
