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/

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.

Great achievement Even if it's slow and not all the keys on the keyboard work and the mouse doesn't click, the author deserves kudos. In most cases this is what it takes to connect: xprogram --display x.x.x.x:0.0
