I'm trying out and noticed that, when I SSH in to my desktop, it fires both an X server and gnome-shell (even though I'm not connecting graphically or using X-forwarding)

When I would SSH in to the computer running , it wouldn't bother with either of those.

Does anyone know why that is/how I can stop running a pointless Xorg process?

(Despite the hashtag, I *did* look for this a bit and came up oddly empty)

@codesections pstree and systemctl --user didn`t show anything? Some kind of agent with a dependency? apt-cache why x...

@codesections is ssh aliased to include the -X flag somewhere maybe?
