Does anybody have any configuration that would allow for running X11 in
a window-as-display? That is, a single Mac window would display an X11
session: window manager, multiple windows, etc.
Ie: X11.app can do windowed mode where each X-window is a Mac-window, or
root where the entire display is owned by X11 (full screen), but cannot
have root-in-a-window, where a single MacOS window would contain an X11
session (window manager, windows, etc).
Alternately, I could start a VNC server, and connect to localhost via a
I have tried:
- X11.app does not have window-as-screen mode
- Xnest does not appear to have a port (ie: tell X11.app to run Xnest
and let it then run a window manager)
- Couldn't find any Xnest-equivalent ports
- packages category:vnc:
- tightvnc fails to build
- tigervnc is viewer only
- vnc fails to build
- cotvnc is viewer
- vineserver appears to be a vnc server to allow access to the Mac
