Keep a remote X11 app running after disconnecting the Session

Published by ugu5ma on

Xpra is the tool of choice ๐Ÿ™‚
Install xpra on server and client like:

root@h2545526:~# apt install xpra
xpra (2.1.3+dfsg-1ubuntu1) wird eingerichtet ...

start e.g. firefox on the server:

xpra start :100 --start-child=firefox

now connect from remote through Ssh:

xpra attach  ssh/user@serverFQDN/100

With xpra firefox remains active on the server even when the client disconnects ๐Ÿ™‚

Big advantage for e.g. large downloads.
