HELP: running process in bg and logout and persist... woes :S
 
Does anyone know how to run a GUI X app remotely in background - that persists even when logged out?

Basically, I ssh into university to run my X program am developing for my project. However I need to leave it running for over 24 hours, maybe days on end preferably. I left it, however it auto-loggs out after 6 hours of idle keyboard input (or something like that).

I remember something about running a process (can it be X too?) in background, and then log out, and it's still running...

If the system logs you out after 6 hours, it will probably kill any processes belonging to you as well. But regardless, the only way to do what I think you're trying to do is to
Code:

$ startx &
You can try it, but I don't know that it will work for you. Best of luck, and if you figure it out, please let us know.
