Since this (or rather, Xnest/Xephyr) has been on the list a fair
deal, here's my recipe for running Maemo UI over VNC. The benefits?
No worries about bitdepths, for example..
First, on host Linux:
- Install Xvnc and vncviewer ("apt-get install xvncviewer")
- Start them:
Xvnc -geometry 800x480 -dpi 96 -ac :68 -depth 16 &
vncviewer :68 &
Xvnc starts an X server (or is it client?) that Maemo output will go.
And it provides that output to any VNC viewers that care to listen
(yes, you can have multiple).
:68 is just a random digit (choose your favorite)
-dpi 96 seems to work (no idea, why the 'right' value would not)
Then, within Scratchbox:
That should do it? I do have also some other stuff, but that
If you want to run Maemo from, say, OS X (or even Pocket PC? ;) just
open a connection to 192.168.1.3 (your Lnux host's IP, use 'ifconfig'
to see it). This _has_ worked for me, but now did not. Might be a
firewall issue or something?
Good luck! :)
