    A bit clunky to get started up with, but works great for remote server maintenance. I have a wireguard server set up to my server at home, I set a few environment variables and it works most of the time. Super helpful. With Samsung DeX it adds another layer entirely, making it possible to have fullscreen apps on a monitor with zero issues.

    termux I actually enjoy using this app, especially using chromium when i play youtube vids in fullscreen in 1080p with 60fps through the localhost in my termux proot distro, but my problem is that some software like vlc, openshot, and libreoffice immediately crash, while in vnc they run well. So i wish those problems should be fix. I would give this 5 stars if those problems are gone, but for now its 4 stars since i enjoy playing the actual desktop version of youtube vids.

    apk i have 2 issues with this app: 1st scroll from connected mouse is not working. it works in other android apps just in linux under xsdl is not working. 2nd it restores size from full screen with esc key. other than these 2 problems so far everything works. edit: 1st problem with the scroll it seems that the scroll wheel works until I alt+tab out of the xsdl. i use this app on a huawei device within the desktop Magic interface (similar to samsung's Dex)

    not working Four stars for effort. Using it on a Chromebook with IP forwarding using Connection Forwarder web app to the IP address of the Android containier. Can get Raspberry Pi window on the CB but unfortunately barely usable. Both the CB mouse & X cursors appear so navigation difficult. Also can't seem to control the font size. Pity as it could be great.

    android 9 Can be a little quirky at first, but once setup to your likes and wants it's a dreamy boat ride. Use this to run X from both a Debian chroot and Termux/proot as it provides very smooth rendering and comes with a pulse server (sink) onboard.

    restarting I've been using this app for a while now. My setup is Google Pixel C, lineage os 14.1 (Nougat) with SYSVIPC enabled in kernel and /dev/shm mounted. I use a loop image with Debian stretch + xfce. Screen resolution is set to 1920x1350 in the app. My big problem is that applications like Firefox or Chromium have graphics problems. When using these programs window rendering will get slow when i move the mouse. For example if I scroll the web page with arrow keys (from the BT keyboard) every thing is fine. If I scroll the window and at the same time move the mouse (BT mouse), or scroll the page using the mouse and the scroll bar, the window rendering will get very slow! The thing that is even stranger is that if I disable xfwm's compositor the window rendering wil be slow even without using the mouse to scroll pages!. I tried switching to compton, xcompmgr and even tried to switch to lxde. Just got worse! I do not understand where is the problem! In xfce I can watch IPTV at fullhd in vlc with audio, fiberlamp screensaver gets 30fps. Overall system performance is ok! EDIT: i compiled libandroid-shmem.so from chroot and placed it in /etc/ld.so.preload. Now firefox works better...

    android Wow this is the easiest x server app I can imagine! It took just a few seconds for it to load and it magically seemed to configure itself just right to run debian connected through ConnectBot and UserLandQ it isn't terribly slow either running LXDE-core. The one issue I have is the cursor acts somewhat unexpectedly,. it would be nice to have the cursor follow touches or if the host is capable of using touch input directly. Can't use the Hackers Keyboard from within this application though so must use bluetooth keyboard instead but I am fine with not having half of the screen obstructed by a VK.

    alternative This application works great! I just have one small issue (but I am not quit sure if this application is responsible for the problem or not). I have installed debian using the UserLAnd app. Then I have installed the lxde desktop to be able to get a GUI using this XServer XSDL app. Furthermore, I have installed an electron.js app which starts a TCP server (listener). I can establish a tcp connection to this electron server with other android native applications but ONLY if the XServer XSDL app IS NOT RUNNING IN THE BACKGROUND. Once the tcp connection is established, I can go back to the other native android app and work normally. Is this a normal behavior? Can I change it? Thank you!

    It is great for Android devices, but DO NOT get it as an X server for your chromebook, ESPECIALLY if wanting to use it with Desktop environments like XFCE, LXDE, etc on the Linux VM in chrome OS settings, but it works GREAT on android tablets, no hate to the app, just wish it had better compatibility with chrome OS, i use it on my android phone for a second display for X programs, love it!

    You know, just a thought — if you provide the "portrait" option, then MAYBE, just maybe, you should write that ONE line of code that automatically switches around xserver's HxW to WxH and vise versa. The app deserves five stars, it's amazing what you did, but you'll get only this for not making this switch. i mean, what is even the point in the "portrait" option then?! also, please add in the description examples for setting custom resolution and dpi. anotner one line that is missing

    I really need a usable X server on Android... Yes, this one is fully working, but the user interface is horribly bad. I can't even do the "click" action with touchscreen... Don't tell me I have installed an "x viewer"? lol Can you please add some control features like RealVNC's VNC Viewer? (That one is damn good, but still, it's just a VNC viewer... What a shame!) Thank you!

    Anything less than 5 starts is an insult. Very well done, nice configuration engine too. Top quality and stability, no ads. Have two questions, how get something done as soon as the server starts..(want do a rcmd alike To run my software on host). Second... How can I map two taps to a command.... Like the mouse gesture.. Want to map the double tap to a letter. Thank you very much for this port and your additions. Very well done, have my respect.

    Thanks for the comeback. Im running arch linux on my note 8 with alsa and pulsaudio again. Vnc just sucks, no audio support, claims ssh will work, lie. Best hands down lxde gnome3 server is xsdl. If users have issues with using it mouse,fonts,display just change settings and download additional fonts. Dejavue and java 8 run arch and firefox, abiword inkscape ect. fine. Anyway thank you. If you need donations for future updates, im in.

    I had no issues using this with the "Linux Deploy" app in the Google Play store. I installed Debian and use the XFCE window manager. For hardware, I used the TF300T, a convertible tablet running KatKiss and a Bluetooth mouse. YouTube videos can play in the Linux browser, but only at very low quality (which is quite impressive given the lack of hardware acceleration)

    I'm really surprised at how well it works (having tried some of the alternatives). Some issues: it refuses to use the built in keyboard on my device, and there is no obvious way to back out or modify configuration (back button brings up the keyboard). It does seem to work quite happily with XFCE4.

    This is great! Nice work! Works very nice on Galaxy S6 but has issues on my old Galaxy Tab 3: server sometimes takes several attempts to start, and sometimes restarts during screen rotating or swapping tasks, and with successively higher display number each restart, as though there were more than one instance of the Xsdl running... BUT, works flawless on the GS6; handy to tunnel VNC or another X11 app over SSH, or use as a virtual display attached to my Linux desktop (a portable extra piece of desktop). Hopefully further development will come! Thank you for this app.

    I don't want to run commands on my pc to make the xwindows emulator run something. This is a misconception on the author's part. I want, independently of sitting in front of the computer, to run programs on android. To the person responding to my rating: Again you misunderstand. We aren't after vnc software. This is about xwindows tunnelling and not remote desktop. Still no relief. This is not xserver software!!!

    It's a functional X server. It works with GNURoot (for example) and provides a functional GUI. Use the Hacker's keyboard (another app) rather than the built-in one. This has decent soft- mouse and keyboard control. It's possible to use desktop apps from a phone or tablet without a hardware mouse and keyboard. * If you quit and restart the X server , your local X clients won't connect. You need to reboot the device. * Once started, there doesn't appear to be any way to change configuration - meaning that configuration changes require a reboot of the device. Configuration is time dependent - you need to click a button within 3 seconds after starting this app. * By default, the "mouse" is controlled by the gyro. This is really annoying.

    Indeed, I managed to run GIMP with Metacity. Will definitely keep this cool app on the device. I tried then to run Budgie desktop with Budgie-wm, but it told me X server doesn't support XInput extension version 2.2. A little help on setting up the SSH port forwarding would be helpful (one need to create a Remote port forwarding from remotehost:600x to 127.0.0.1:6000, where x is the DISPLAY number=0,1,2 etc).

    The app has been left without an update for months, and just freezes, doesn't actually do anything bar waste over 100 MB of your space. It starts with a countdown, and the moment it hits '1' app not responding. I hope the developer sees this and does something about the issue asap, really needed this - would have paid £5 ($10) for it! (if it worked) edit: in fact I would offer £50 for a decent material design / hw acceleration. (running Remix OS and would like to run native linux applications from my secondary processing box, direct Ethernet available.) edit 2: after much frustration and effort, and lack of clear instructions; I managed to get it started, but still didn't work. Everytime I move the mouse it shows every other frame, the application freezes and stops working.

    The app does precisely what it's supposed to do: act as an X server for graphical applications running on another computer. It properly supports Bluetooth keyboards and mice and can handle most common graphical programs. However, bear in mind that X forwarding is very sensitive to latency because of the nature of the protocol and so the experience may be worse than VNC if you're using it to get a desktop from a cloud server. This isn't an issue with the app itself but is intrinsic to any X server, so I'm not deducting any stars.
