User-agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:10.0.12) Gecko/20130116 Icedove/10.0.12

on the same box from another term:

$ screen -x myscreen -X stuff 'mycommand \n'

echoes command to myscreen and runs mycommand,

from a remote box running a bash script:

$ ssh address@hidden -t "screen -x myscreen -X stuff 'mycommand \n' "

opens myscreen but mycommand is not echoed nor does it run

further ideas please

How from a script to run a command once attached to a remote screen?

You should use -X instead of -x. You can also use -p to select a
windows, before starting the command (useful for "stuff" commands).
