Multiseat X Under X11R6.9/7.0

Filed under
HowTos

I keep getting inquiries about multiseat X configuration under X11R6.9. Here is a temporary mini-Howto document that I've put together. I'll write a better one when X11R6.9/7.0 is finalized (and time permits Smile) ... and there will be a chapter on the topic in one of my upcoming books.

In the meantime, have fun! -- please let me know what experiences you have trying this out (positive or negative) -- in particular, it would be great to have reports on which video card combinations work or do not work.

(For those new the term "Multiseat X", it means creating a system with mulitple video monitors, keyboards, and mice for simultaneous use by multiple users -- like my home system).

Quick Guide/Mini-HOWTO on Creating a Multiseat X System using X.Org 6.9.

  • KDE Arrives in Almería for Akademy 2017
    We have travelled from across the globe to meet for our annual gathering where we plan and discuss the next year's activities creating free software to share with the world. Almería is in the south east of Spain, a country which has long been a supporter of free software and collaboration with its creators. The sun here is hot but the water is also warm for those who make it to the beach to discuss their work with a pina colada and a swim. Over the last year KDE has run conferences in Brazil, India, Spain, Germany and sprints in Randa in Switzerland, Krita in the Netherlands, Marble in Germany, GSoC in the US, WikiToLearn in India, Plasma in Germany, Kontact in France, and sent representatives to OSCAL in Albania, FOSSASIA in Singapore, FUDCON in Cambodia, HKOSCon in Hong Kong and more.
  • Guest Post: Retired From KDE, by Paul Adams
    Long time no see, huh? Yes, I neglected my blog and as such didn't post anything since Akademy 2014... Interestingly this is the last one where my dear Paul Adams held a famous talk.  [...] During my PhD I was studying Free Software community productivity metrics. I was also working on research into software quality funded by the European Commission. KDE eV (the governance body1 for KDE) was also taking part in that project. At this time KDE was almost ready to release KDE 4. It was an exciting time to get involved.
