    2828System notifications use [http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/dbus dbus], so you must start the xpra server within its own dbus session, ie: "{{{dbus-launch xpra start ...}}}" (see dbus-launch for details). This is one of the things that [http://winswitch.org/about winswitch] does for you.
    2929* How do I forward a full desktop (ala VNC) instead of individual applications?
    30 Use [http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/Xephyr/ Xephyr], simply start the xpra server with: {{{xpra start --start-child="Xephyr :200 -ac -screen 800x600" ...}}} then start a window manager or desktop environment on the {{{Xephyr}}} dusplay, ie: "{{{DISPLAY=:200 fluxbox&}}}".
     30Use [http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/Xephyr/ Xephyr], simply start the xpra server with Xephyr as a child and start a window manager (ie: fluxbox, or a full desktop environment like gnome or KDE) on the {{{Xephyr}}} display:
     31{{{
     32xpra start --start-child="Xephyr :200 -ac -screen 800x600" :100
     33DISPLAY=:200 fluxbox&
     34}}}
    3135Note: you must chose a separate display number for Xephyr.
    3236If Xephyr is not available on your system, you can also use [http://www.xfree86.org/4.2.0/Xnest.1.html Xnest].
