    2727* How do I use notifications forwarding?
    28 System notifications use [http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/dbus dbus], so you must start the xpra server within its own dbus session (see dbus-launch for details). This is one of the things that [http://winswitch.org/about winswitch] does for you.
     28System 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.
     29* How do I forward a full desktop (ala VNC) instead of individual applications?
     30Use [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&}}}".
     31Note: you must chose a separate display number for Xephyr.
     32If Xephyr is not available on your system, you can also use [http://www.xfree86.org/4.2.0/Xnest.1.html Xnest].
    2933* How do I use mmap with different users?
    3034Please see the --mmap-group option: the two users need to be in the same group, the mmap file created by the client will use the group-id of the server socket file. You must generally also use the --socket-dir option to place the socket in a location which is available to both users (ie: /tmp)
