x2x-1.27: description + notes


x2x - X to X connection


x2x <[-to ] | [-from ]> [options...]


x2x allows the keyboard and mouse on one ("from") X display to be used to control another ("to") X display. Since x2x uses the XTEST extension, the "to" X display must support XTEST.


x2x does not work well with an SGI as the master (-from) display, and XFree86 as the slave (-to) display. It works okay the other way around, and works just fine with a Solaris machine as the slave. I have not spent any time diagnosing this problem, since it mostly works. Better to get the software out with caveats than sit on it forever!
