Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)

This bug has been reported on Debian (http://bugs.debian.org/678402):

I tried

$ xpra start :13
$ DISPLAY=:13 urxvt &
$ xpra attach :13

I get a broken urxvt because X startup scripts are not run and, among
other things, .Xresources are not loaded into the Xvfb X server.

I wonder how IMs are supposed to work in absence of X startup scripts,
too.

This makes xpra environment pretty much unusable.

It is not the role of xpra to deal with starting up the full X environment, that is what tools like winswitch are for.

If you must do it with xpra, you can always point --xvfb to a script of your choosing that starts whatever you require (dbus, etc).
