#1930 closed defect (fixed)

--attach=yes fails with -z0

Reported by: rumba Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: minor Milestone: 2.4
Component: client Version: 2.3.x
Keywords: Cc:


The --attach=yes option will fail to start the client if the --compress=0 option is used.

For example xpra start --attach=yes --start=xterm --daemon=no -z0 will produce:

xpra initialization error:
 no such option: --compression_level

Milestone: 2.4
Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Preface: unless your setup is very unusual (ie: a very low power CPU, or your installation is missing the lz4 compressor), then setting compression to zero will do absolutely nothing.


  • r20050: support more command line option aliases for compression level
  • r20051: rewrite command line arguments when generating command lines for servers potentially older then the current version (ie: via ssh)

r20051 also includes a fix for an unintended variable name shadowing bug
