    16 Fake xinerama allows us to tell X11 client applications running on the xpra server that the display is in fact made of multiple screen whose geometry can be made to match that of the client exactly, despite the fact that the virtual display that we start (usually [/wiki/Xdummy Xdummy]) only has one virtual screen defined.

     35We do provide binary {{{RPM}}}s for various distributions based on this spec file: [/browser/xpra/trunk/src/fakexinerama/libfakeXinerama.spec libfakeXinerama.spec]
