Home Learn Linux Linux Answers Internet Reconnecting a x-client running through ssh to another x-server?
  • One possibility would be running VNC through an SSH tunnel. VNC allows disconnecting to desktop and reconnecting with open windows. Most distros have a VNC package in their repos. Some distros install it by default.

    Hope this helps.

  • Tried with screens but without success.
    I definitively make use of VNC with SSH, just configure your desk with a light WM and use your programs from it

  • I have not yet found a way to tell a running application to switch screens when they are run from a remote computer.

    As I see it you want the application to stay running on the remote computer's active screen upon termination of the remote connection, it seems the only way to do that would be to use a remote desktop application such as vnc to access the remote screen and do your work directly from the desktop of the remove computer.
