    SSh X Windows Kajigger


    I do not know if this fits into the category I chose but I think it works.

    My ISSUE:

    I am logged into my computer through ssh. I want to open firefox remotely, but have it display on the host computer.

    So I want to ssh into it with my phone and have the ability to open a firefox window which displays on the monitor, not my phone.


    ANY ideas?

    Turns out the solution is very simple:

    1) The default display on server is named ":0"

    2) therefore, the command is simply $firefox --display=:0
