AIM: Add entry to twm pop-up menu to `rsh' an xterm from a remore host
known as bathybius
What I tried:
Added the followed lines to .twmrc
"Bathybius" !"/usr/bin/rsh bathybius .bathybius_xterm &"
where .bathybius_xterm is on the remote host:
xterm -T Bathybius -n Bathybius -e /usr/local/bin/tcsh
(This was to avoid `quote' errors)
/usr/bin/rsh bathybius .bathybius_xterm &
from an xterm window works fine (a new xterm from bathybius appears)
but doing it from the twm menu does nothing but freeze my window
manager. I must log in from a remote machine and kill the window
manager to be able to do anything after that.
Also, I can't seem to succesfully use rsh in xinitrc either.
I want to have an xbiff running on the remote host.
I know that an `rexec' command would be better suited to the task, but
I haven't found one in linux.
Any help appreciated!
