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/

I use this to turn old tablets and smartphones into small remote monitors for our alarm systems and other things. Works great, and very useful!

Awesome I think that this idea is one of the greatest ever! It also takes up a very small amount of storage!

Useless Can't even run XTerm - hangs at any attempt and has to be killed. Completely useless.

Doesn't work very well Wasn't able to launch any programs except xclock, from my debian server. Worst off all.. No info what's so ever how to use it or anything. Completely creasy to spend time on something and then not to include at least a small how to or a few examples. 😕 got some info from comments, but hey it should have been available in the first place.

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.
