SSH and TTY - SCO

    Default SSH and TTY

    Hi all,

    I have an X11 application running on Linux 8. I am trying to run
    that application from my SCO machine using ssh. My command looks like
    this:
    /usr/local/ssh2/bin/ssh2 usernamehostname /usr/local/bin/app

    This line works fine if I run it from a command prompt. However, I
    am trying to set up a function key to invoke the application. This is
    what I have on my .mwmrc

    Keys DefaultKeyBindings
    {
    :
    :

    <Key>F9 root|icon|window f.exec "/usr/local/bin/app"

    :
    }

    When I press F9, nothing happens. Does it need a shell to run the
    X11 application? I tried allocate tty by using the -t switch but still
    doesn't work. Any idea?

    Thanks

    Sorry, my mistake.... the line should be
    <Key>F9 root|icon|window f.exec "/usr/local/ssh2/bin/ssh2 \
    usernamehostname /usr/local/bin/app"


    Thanks.
