I’ve been trying to get x11 forwarding over SSH working in Manjaro for longer than I can remember, and it just seems to be literally impossible.
That doesn’t make any sense, because, y’know, it’s Linux.
So, what I really need is a noob friendly, step-by-step, idiot proof guide that spells out exactly what commands to run, and exact paths for files to edit.
Don’t ask what I’ve already tried, I have tried so many things over a very long time that I can’t remember them off the top of my head, so I just want to start from scratch.
Please do not recommend VNC without first addressing my x11 forwarding issue, I just want remote access to individual applications. When I want to setup VNC, that will be a separate endeavor that I will work on somewhere else.
Sorry if this is a bit much, I’m pretty ignorant about networking in general, and I have plenty of other network related problems that I won’t address here unless it’s contextually necessary.
EDIT: Remote login returns this error:
X11 forwarding request failed on channel 0
EDIT 2: I’ve managed to login with x11 enabled, but I receive error:
qt.qpa.xcb: could not connect to display
qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load the Qt platform plugin “xcb” in “” even though it was found.
This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.
Available platform plugins are: wayland-org.kde.kwin.qpa, eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, vnc, wayland-egl, wayland, wayland-xcomposite-egl, wayland-xc

Thanks for reading my post, I really appreciate it.
