xpra start/shadow: fail-fast if screen exists already

Reported by: stdedos Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: minor Milestone: 4.0
Component: client Version: 3.0.x
Keywords: Cc:



[i] One example is trying to start on a screen that already exists.

For [i], I would assume a fail-fast (instead of a timeout) client-side
solution would quickly inform me that "try to attach instead". It could
even automatically/interactively ask to do so?

The assumption here is that the server is remote (e.g. via ssh), so running the additional xpra list command is "a bit more complicated".

This may be easier with the paramiko backend?
Using the proxy command return code to decide what to do?
