    Command:

    Xephyr

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           Xephyr [:display] [option ...]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           Xephyr  is  a  kdrive server that outputs to a window on a pre-existing
           "host" X display.  Think Xnest but with support for  modern  extensions
           like composite, damage and randr.
    
           Unlike  Xnest which is an X proxy, i.e.  limited to the capabilities of
           the host X server, Xephyr is a real X server  which  uses  the  host  X
           server window as "framebuffer" via fast SHM XImages.
    
           It  also has support for "visually" debugging what the server is paint-
           ing.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           The server accepts all the standard options of Xserver(1) and the  fol-
           lowing additional options:
    
           -screen widthxheight
                   sets the screen size.
    
           -parent id
                   uses exiting window id .  If a -screen argument follows a -par-
                   ent argument, this screen is embedded into the given window.
    
           -host-cursor
                   set 'cursor acceleration': The host's cursor is reused. This is
                   only  really  there  to aid debugging by avoiding server paints
                   for the cursor. Performance improvement is negligible.
    
    
    

    SIGNALS

           Send a SIGUSR1 to the server (e.g. pkill -USR1 Xephyr)  to  toggle  the
           debugging  mode.   In  this  mode  red rectangles are painted to screen
           areas getting painted before painting the actual  content.   The  delay
           between  this  can  be  altered  by setting a XEPHYR_PAUSE env var to a
           value in micro seconds.
    
    
    

    CAVEATS

           ? Rotated displays are currently updated via full blits. This is slower
             than a normal orientated display. Debug mode will therefore not be of
             much use rotated.
    
           ? The '-host-cursor' cursor is static in its appearance.
    
           ? The build gets a warning about 'nanosleep'. I think the various  '-D'
             build  flags  are  causing this. I haven't figured as yet how to work
             round it. It doesn't appear to break anything however.
    
           ? Keyboard handling is basic but works.
    
           Mouse button 5 probably won't work.
