So do what I did with evolution.  Create a script on the remote machine
something like:

evolution --force-shutdown

Then on your local machine create a custom launcher with the command

ssh -Y nameofremotemachine /fullpathto/nameofscripttorun

When I click on that icon on my local machine I get a very nice password
requester which then connects via ssh to the remote system and runs the
script as specified.  The display is forwarded back to my local system.

In the custom launcher make sure the run in terminal option is not

You should be able to do similar things for pretty much any application.
And you don't need to have a script on the remote system, you can point
to the actual application.  In my example I found it useful to force
evolution to shutdown first before trying to restart it.
