Hi,

I have ssh'd into my Dual G4 from my Powerbook and can run TOP etc but I want to launch iTunes on the G4. How can I do this?

Thanks

open -a iTunes

(As long as you're logged in at the machine obviously, you can't launch it for another user...)

Thanks proton!

How do you find out all these commands?
Is there a list all commands command!

Man is only useful if you know the name of the command beforehand.

Try "man -k". That's for searching the database of man pages for a specific word. Just make sure that your man database has been built - the cronjobs do this weekly at nights, or you can use a maintenance program to search it manually.

Try 'man -k somestring' where somestring is a string that is likely to appear in the description of the command. You will then get a list of commands and their manpage descriptions that contain somestring.

There are also various books available that detail this stuff.
-DU-...etc...
