X Server

X Server


This application implements a mostly-complete X11 server, running natively in Android. It allows X Window System applications to be run remotely and displayed on an Android device with internet access.

Note that this application does not come with a window manager. However, it is possible to run a window manager remotely, which is fiddly but seems to work.

This is still a beta release, so feel free to report any bugs you find, or, better yet, fix them yourself. Yes, it's open source, hosted at http://code.google.com/p/android-xserver/

Added the XTEST extension.

Not grest for full blown X Apps. Works ok for simple demos and apps, doesn't work for some more complicated x apps (like yhe apps fault as well). Well done, though.

Great idea in principle. . but I've not actually got it to work with any consistency so far.

It really works! (It doesn't work well, though...)

I appreciate the effort, but . . . I'm sort of baffled by all the praise. No apps I use display properly (maybe because I'm using a tablet, not a phone?) Gedit initially displays alright, but then menus and their respective text begin to disappear. I tried launching Nicotine (GTK-based SoulSeek client) and it was not centered on the screen and, like with Gedit, text was missing from many menus. I'm using CM9 on an HP Touchpad; the server is running Debian Squeeze over a 801.11n connection. It is very alpha at this stage.

Does what I need it to do... Works perfectly to provide me remote x terminals.
