Re: X app on multiple displays


I do not agree with you. I use reflection. It's an X server after all.

What you need to do is to run a X application with multiple display variables as
command line arguments.

Or other way I can think of is, as follows.

Lets say you want a program running on machine 'A' to be displayed on machines
'B' to 'Z'.  So on machines 'B'-'Z', add 'A' in access control list. And run X
program on 'A' with DISPLAY variable set to any one machine of 'B'-'Z'. Point is
it has to go to the network.
The machines 'B'-'Z' should listen to and accept the broadcast traffic from that
machine, even if it's not destined to to them. Maybe put your network card in
promiscuous mode. Ugly hack indeed. What do you people think? Will this work?
