Multiple X sessions

November 28, 2006 at 11:57 pm Leave a comment

I’ve been playing around with X this week. Xnest was pretty cool, but I can’t do much more than send an Xterm to it. Starting full blown window managers seems to work only half the time, but I’ll get it eventually. I also managed to accidently discover how to start multiple X session. 🙂 All it takes is a simple startx -- :2 You can then switch between the sessions using CTRL+ALT+F7/F8. I had no idea how usefull this would be! I’ve been trying to get the Synaptics touchpad driver to work, but with little success. By using Multiple X sessions I can have all my website’s open and try out my new X settings in the other. This is also good for multiple user logins and remote X sessions.
