    42 Xpra normally forwards just the windows of the application you are interested in. If you want to forward a full desktop instead (including its start menu, background, task bar, etc...) use a nested X11 server:

     44With {{{Xephyr}}}:
    4345{{{
    4446xpra start --start-child="Xephyr :200 -ac -screen 800x600" :100
    4547DISPLAY=:200 fluxbox&

    47 Or if {{{Xephyr}}} is not installed or does not work properly (you can verify by running it directly without xpra - there seems to be some problems with some GL driver conflicts, ie: nvidia drivers..), you can also use {{{Xnest}}}:

    5254Notes:
    5355 * you can start a window manager of your choice (here {{{fluxbox}}}) or none at all..
    54  * to get the session to terminate when you exit the window manager, modify the command line and add {{{-terminate}}} to {{{Xephyr}}} (or {{{Xnest}}}) and {{{--exit-with-children}}} to xpra's
     56 * to get the session to terminate when you exit the window manager, modify the command lines and add {{{-terminate}}} to {{{Xephyr}}}'s (or {{{Xnest}}}'s) and {{{--exit-with-children}}} to Xpra's
    5557 * beware: some desktop environments may show options to shutdown/reboot the system from their start menu, which may or may not be appropriate
    5658 * you can resize the desktop using the standard "randr" desktop tools (and not by resizing the window at present)
     59 * {{{Xephyr}}} may not work properly on some systems as there seems to be some GL driver conflicts (ie: nvidia). You can verify by running it directly without xpra.
