Have you tried using SSH as explained in the tutorial you linked to? This would allow you to ssh into your robot and start whatever you would like from your laptop terminal.

I tried ssh this time. I made mistake earlier of not using the "username" of robot PC while ssh robotpc@robotcompurtername. That was the mistake. I was using the username of Linux PC user name.
