Please see: How to logout after starting the web interface of Pathway Tools.

To summarize:

  1. Install and use Xvfb to create a virtual display at port :1

  2. Install and use screen to start the pathway-tools script. Screen allows you to run a task in a detached process that will not get terminated after logging out.
