 I am sorry it took so long to respond to this issue.\\
 Further, I do not think there is an easy solution. \\
 xxdiff uses Qt for the GUI.\\
 Currently, Qt does not support xcb, so `xxdiff --platform xcb` does not
 In other words, xxdiff does not support (through Qt) X11 and is not likely
 to in the near future.
