#1479 closed enhancement (fixed)

Option to attach to local session when creating it

Reported by: Giuseppe Bilotta Owned by: Giuseppe Bilotta
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: server Version: trunk
Keywords: Cc:


I often use Xpra to improve the (local) accessibility of applications that don't support High DPI displays properly. So my typical workflow is:

$ xpra start --start=lodpiprogram
$ xpra attach --desktop-scaling=2

Moreover, I actually have to wait for the Xpra server to fully start before firing up the client: xpra start ; xpra attach sometimes just doesn't cut it.

Having an option to actually start the client automatically would be of great help. Something like:

xpra start --start=cmd [other options] --attach [attach options]

This would essentially run the usual start program, and when done it would try to run xpra attach :DISPLAY [attach options] where :DISPLAY is the display started by this call.

As of r15485, you can do:

xpra start --start=xterm --attach=yes --desktop-scaling=2

r15487 also makes it possible to start a remote server without connecting to it:

xpra start ssh/HOST/ --start=xterm --attach=no

@Giuseppe Bilotta: please close if this works for you.
