Re: how to open a terminal via a shell script

Hey

You can use remsh to execute a command on a remote box.

Check man remsh

Hey (again)

what would you do with the browser?

check the wget command perhaps that's for your issue

Re: how to open a terminal via a shell script

run script in background:

./scriptname.sh &

remsh:
you have to configure it on each machine. read man remsh. you'll see how to configure the .rhosts files.

final command:

#remsh remote_host /path/to/remote/script.sh &

hope this helps

instead of remsh you can also use rsh...

Re: how to open a terminal via a shell script

For firefox, try:

firefox -url http://google.com

This will connect to the currently running browser on the display. If no instance of firefox by that user is running, a new instance of firefox will be launched.
Necessary questions: Why? What? How? When?

Re: how to open a terminal via a shell script

You can start a terminal with the gnome-terminal command. That assumes that you have a gnome based linux distribution.
Something like this-

gnome-terminal -e script1
gnome-terminal -e 'script2 arg1 arg2'
