I am running a media center PC based on the CT VDR distribution. Beside the attached TV set there is no monitor connected, what makes it difficult to use other software than that belonging to the VDR distribution. Therefore it would be a nice feature if you were able to export the X-Screen of the media center to the Simpad (explicite not for watching videos!).
I allready succeeded exporting single X applications like Amarok to the GPE screen. What I didn't manage is to export XFCE to the Simpad without running GPE in the "background".
However the drawback of X-forwading is that the connection gets lost as soon as the simpad suspends.
Here are my questions:
1.) Does anyone of you know a methode to keep the X-forwarding alive respective a methode to reactive it when the Simpad returns from the suspend mode?
2.) How do I kill GPE to get just the exported XFCE session?
3.) I wonder wether there is a posibility to use a Simpad as a Linux based thinclient?
Thanks and best regards
