I have a few machines running Ubuntu and often I need to run an application from one machine on another. So I use ssh to do this as I already have it set up and it is simple to do.

For example

ssh -X netbook liferea

This works well for me as I don't have to sync files or install applications on all my machines.

When I try to do this with Tomboy Notes I get errors:

ssh -X netbook tomboy

Unhandled Exception: System.Exception: Unable to open the session message bus. ---> System.ArgumentNullException: Argument cannot be null.

Is it possible to launch Tomboy Notes over ssh?

Maybe you can use tomboycli. –  dAnjou Aug 22 '11 at 11:28

As a quick hack, launch dbus-launch tomboy.

I get ssh netbook dbus-launch tomboy [INFO 16:28:04.342] Initializing Mono.Addins and nothing happens –  Richard Holloway Aug 22 '11 at 15:28
    
@Richard Holloway: nothing seems to happen, but have you seen in the panel if the icon appears? It appears on my test. –  enzotib Aug 22 '11 at 15:39
    
No, no icon either. –  Richard Holloway Aug 25 '11 at 9:32
