ssh x11 forwarding question
Does anyone know if there is a way to move an application that is already running to another X11 display?
I would like to access running programs via SSH x-forwarding. For example, I would like to keep an anjuta IDE project open on my main machine, and be able to forward the screen to another computer.
I know I could use VNC. I'd rather not. Thanks in advance.
Sorry to bump an old thread
NX will also shadow the session you already have open if you allow it in the config files.
Say you turn your desktop PC on, boot into KDE and start Firefox, then grab your laptop, hit your screensaver and go up to Starbucks.
Boot laptop, load NX, select "shadow", enter your screensaver password and there is your Firefox, just as you left it.
One problem with this is that the screen will scale. If your desktop is 1280x1024 and your laptop 1024x768 you will have a hard time reading the squashed fonts.
