ssh access to my own server with Ubuntu 13.10 on it installed.
ssh I can launch GUI applications using this approach:
$ ssh -X my_login@address_of_sever
After that I can start any application by name, e.g.
google-chrome, and it will be opened on my client machine (just the window, actually application works on the remote machine - i.e. on server).
This is all fine.
But when I close the GUI application on the client machine it gets closed on the server too (it seems to be legit).
I can launch console applications using commands such as:
$ nohup php somefile.php &
and it will continue working after closing the connection.
I wonder, is it possible to do the same with GUI application?
Ideally it would be if it were possible to move opened window to server and take it back to client when it's necessary to see what is happening there, some kind of switching perhaps?
