Re: Start Application via SSH?

If you don't need the GUI anyway, wouldn't the (headless) calibre-server be the program to start? That should eliminate the need for an X session completely. I agree with this - I run calibre and wasn't aware of the content server option (found under connect/share) - the web interface seems to let ...

Re: Start Application via SSH?

That's why any "solution" based on -X or -Y is obviously wrong for your use case. These responses (the ones mentioning -X or -Y) should be ignored. You would do well to try to follow along with the advice I posted recently. Can you answer the questions posted therein? Thanks. I didn't know the answ...

Re: Start Application via SSH?

Assuming you ran ssh from a system running X, (rather than one of those M$ thingies) as in this example from my Linux Mint to pi system a:- ssh -l pi -Y a.local the -Y is important (or use -X) note the uppercase.

Re: Start Application via SSH?

Perhaps some more clarification would be helpful and others may want to do this. Calibre will automatically monitor and download all RSS feeds of your choice and automatically email them to your Kindle. The purpose of leaving it running on a headless pi is to perform the above for me. Yes, I can ju...

Re: Start Application via SSH?

For clarification: Does calibre have a GUI which you want to have displayed on a screen connected to the Pi or is it just a background process you want to run without seeing its output? I don't need to use the Calibre GUI once it is started on the pi, it just needs to run as a background process wi...

Greetings, I have searched everywhere but can't seem to find an answer to this question. If I am logging into my raspberry pi via ssh on my LAN, how do I start an application from the terminal? I'm not interested in using the application or viewing it from my computer, I just want to start it so it ...
