Ubuntu Xorg settings for remote display management


Could I setup my display to show only running applications, without show Ubuntu desktop and run this application remotely, from SSH?


ssh@jetson$ DISPLAY=:0.1 python my_app.py

How to configure Xorg for this?

In that thread you can substitute your script for qmlviewer. Also, it is possible to run startx to start with particular resolutions, and many apps can be set to run at particular resolutions…matching the two at the same resolution should give you full screen.

NOTE: vt1 is “control-alt-F1” if in X, or “alt-F1” if in console. You could test with vt2 without interfering with the regular display.
