|Move windows between XServers|
|Saturday, 26 January 2008 22:31|
Who has ever been working on more than one Linux computer simultaneously knows the problem: I need this window on the other computer's screen.
The solution: xmove. Usage is quite simple: start another XServer on port :1 by issueing the command
xmove -port 1
All windows that shall be movable to other displays should use this server. By default xmove displays them on the active XServer. To move them to another display type
xmovectrl :1 -moveall :10
where :10 denotes the 10th XServer. Because the standard X protocol is used, this also works over ssh or together with Xnest.
