I'm very sorry, I'm not currently aware of the correct terminology of what I'm trying to do, otherwise Google probably would have fixed this for me:
Essentially, I am SSH'd into a SUSE Linux box and need to run a "silent" mode command of a GUI app, that apparently needs an active X session to run/attach to.
If I am viewing the desktop on said box, open a terminal, the command runs fine, it just hangs when run from a remote shell.
I understand there should be a way to attach this command to the already existing X session (I don't need any output, it generates a file), but I don't know how to do that.
Am I right? Wrong? What should I be doing?
