Redirect Zenity input to ssh login


I'm trying to use my laptops hotkeys to mount my remote home-directory via shfs. Mounting the directory works perfect from the terminal, but it requires a password is entered. I could set up authentication keys and skip the password, but i prefer to keep it.

Password=`zenity --entry --text "Enter SSH Password:"`
shfsmount -p -P 22 /mnt/remote
"the script waits for user input"
I don't know if it's possible to input the password since the script halts. But i hope some one have an idea.

That is a possibility. But wouldn't that give a open connection all the time, because ssh-agent loads with x or the same problem with collecting the password if ssh-agent is startet later? But I will set it up to see how it works.


ssh, zenity
