ssh-keygen -t rsa
ssh %USERNAME%@%LINUX_HOST% "mkdir .ssh; chmod 0700 .ssh"
bash -c 'scp ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub %LINUX_HOST%:.ssh/authorized_keys2'

start /min xinit
ssh %LINUX_HOST% "declare -x DISPLAY=%COMPUTERNAME%:0; echo $DISPLAY;gnome-session"'
Sometimes xhost + does not execute in time. O well. Just close
all windows that got opened and try again.
If you didn't do the step one (ssh keys), you will be prompted
to enter the linux password; this increases the chances of the above
The single terminal window appearing in the Linux desktop is in fact
a window from your PC.
