    8080* [/browser/xpra/trunk/rpmbuild/0003-fix-pointer-limits.patch 0003-fix-pointer-limits.patch] to fix unresponsive clicks after resizing up - see #349

    8382The dummy packages in the xpra repositories include those patches.
     
    8685Ubuntu does weird things with their Xorg server which prevents it from running Xdummy (tty permission issues).
    8786
    88 Status: at time of writing, Xdummy can be used with 16.10 (aka "yakkety") but not with earlier versions. (see r14327)
     87Status: at time of writing, Xdummy can be used with 18.04 but not with earlier versions. (see r14327)

    90 (The following workaround has been tested on Ubuntu 14.04 server.
    9189
    92 * make sure you have ''xserver-xorg-video-dummy'' package installed.
    93 * 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)
    94 {{{
    95 sudo adduser username groupname
    96 }}}
    97 * fully reboot the server. Group membership change does not take effect until a new log in.
    98 * login to the server remotely (e.g. via ssh) and start the xpra using commands like this:
    99 {{{
    100 xpra --xvfb="Xorg -noreset -nolisten tcp +extension GLX \
    101     -config /etc/xpra/xorg.conf \
    102     +extension RANDR +extension RENDER -logfile ${HOME}/.xpra/Xorg-10.log" \
    103     start :100
    104 }}}
    105 If that works, you can then place this same xvfb option in your global config file ''/etc/xpra/xpra.conf''.
    106 
    107 Note, 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.
    108 
    109 That's all! Using this method, I am able to run xpra with xdummy on an ubuntu 14.04 server)

    11290=== non-suid binary ===
    11391If you distribution ships the newer version but only installs a suid Xorg binary, Xpra should have installed the [/browser/xpra/trunk/src/scripts/xpra_Xdummy xpra_Xdummy] wrapper script and configured xpra.conf to use it instead of the regular Xorg binary.
