    v20 v21  
    8282(The following workaround has been tested on Ubuntu 14.04 server.
    8383
    84 First, make sure you have xserver-xorg-video-dummy package installed.
    85 
    86 Second, add the user who is going to start xpra/xdummy on the server to the following three groups: tty, video and dialout (these are the groups /dev/tty* and /dev/fb0 /dev/dri/card0 devices belong to)
     84* make sure you have ''xserver-xorg-video-dummy'' package installed.
     85* add the user who is going to start xpra/xdummy on the server to the following three groups: ''tty'', ''video'' and ''dialout'' (these are the groups {{{/dev/tty*}}}, {{{/dev/fb0}}} and {{{/dev/dri/card0}}} devices belong to)
     86{{{
    8787sudo adduser username groupname
    88 
    89 Third, fully reboot the server. Group membership change does not take effect until a new log in.
    90 
    91 Fourth, login to the server remotely (e.g. via ssh) and start the xpra using commands like this:
    92  xpra --xvfb='Xorg -noreset -nolisten tcp +extension GLX
    93  +extension RANDR +extension RENDER -logfile ${HOME}/.xpra/Xvfb-10.log"
    94  start :100
     88}}}
     89* fully reboot the server. Group membership change does not take effect until a new log in.
     90* login to the server remotely (e.g. via ssh) and start the xpra using commands like this:
     91{{{
     92xpra --xvfb='Xorg -noreset -nolisten tcp +extension GLX \
     93    +extension RANDR +extension RENDER -logfile ${HOME}/.xpra/Xvfb-10.log"
     94    start :100
     95}}}
     96If that works, you can then place this xvfb option in your global config file ''/etc/xpra/xpra.conf''.

    9698Note, if you are running an instance of Xorg locally on the server (e.g. using it as a desktop with a monitor attached), you need to start xpra server ''before'' starting the local xorg instance, or some permission issues may prevent you from starting xorg.
