I have a SSH server running in my home computer, with
X11Forwarding enabled. I would like to connect to my computer from another computer and run some graphical programs. The problem is, that if a particular program is already running in my home computer, then it won't run again in my remote computer. All it does is gain focus in the home computer.
I believe this problem can be solved if I could find a way to open 2 instances of the same program. I know that if I connect to another user, or run the program from another user in my local computer than I would be able to run the same program twice, once in each user.
So I believe a solution would be to simulate a run of the program as another user. Problem is, I have only 1 user account, and I do want to run the programs - remotely, and locally from that particular user (which has access to my files and settings).
What is the simplest way to accomplish it?
(I'm running Ubuntu)
