#136 fixed reduce imports required for basic functions - speedup and will reduce logging Antoine Martin Antoine Martin

Some commands barely use any features, yet they need to import tons of stuff. This makes them slow to start and produces lots of unnecessary debug messages to be printed.


  • away/back: should not care about pygtk, icons, etc..
  • "--help" should not need to load pygst (which causes its own warning logging: ** Message: pygobject_register_sinkfunc is deprecated (GstObject))
  • winswitch_open should be fast and nimble
#140 duplicate replace Xvfb with Xvnc or Xdummy when using xpra Antoine Martin Antoine Martin

Xvfb is old and it is missing a number of useful X11 extensions, also the alternatives may offer better keyboard support? The idea of using those as an alternative to Xvfb is not new either, see x11vnc faq-xvfb

Information about dummy driver is scarce, but there is some in XorgTesting

The easiest way (which seems to work ok) is to use Xdummy (GPLv2+)

One of the most important benefits is that these alternatives also support randr so we could envisage resizing the buffer to the size needed by the client currently connected rather than the default huge size we have at the moment.

#142 wontfix 64-bit build for MS Windows Antoine Martin Antoine Martin

There are a number of obstacles which prevent us from following the instructions on dev/win32.

For some dependencies, it is just a question of doing more manual work than running the 64-bit version of the installer, as is the case for setuptools and python wmi.

Then there's the problem that by default, you can't compile 64-bit programs with distutils and VC 2008... (see and use this patch: - why isn't this merged and released??)

Unfortunately, other dependencies are even harder to deal with:

  • pygtk (or even just plain GTK for that matter) do not provide 64-bit installers at present, and building from source is too tedious: see this discussion for details.
  • gstreamer does not provide a 64-bit version, all the bindings are for 32-bit python only at present...
