Xpra Clients


There are a number of client implementations, but only the Python GTK2 is really usable at present. However, fixing or adding new clients is relatively easy as most of the features are optional and the client code is much simpler than the server side. Alternatively, you can always write a new client.

Python GTK2 Client

This is the default client, fully supported, the only full featured client.
It supports PixmapBacking, CairoBacking and GLPixmapBacking for drawing window contents. (see wiki/ClientRendering for details) OpenGL should be used by default when supported.


Settings are accessible through a tray menu on operating systems that support this feature (ie: not gnome3, see wiki/FAQ for details), including access to the very useful session information dialog.

Python GTK3 Client

Work in progress ticket #90: this client is not yet usable, it does not support keyboard input yet and lacks a number of features, it is also slower than the GTK2 client and only supports rendering via CairoBacking.

Python Qt4 Client

Work in progress ticket #388: this client is not yet usable.
