Testing XMir on Xubuntu
Updated: 10/17/13 Version: 0.0.15r1100 (Xubuntu Saucy Salamander release)
Xubuntu will continue to use Xorg for 13.10, read this post for more information. You are still welcome to test the images here.
- Note, Input from any other VTs will be entered into the running graphical system (For XMir.)
- Download the 32bit ISO directly, use zsync to download, or Torrent it.
Optionally, check the ISO against the md5sum: 0743fd1629e228aa38f3f03861fb016f
- Download the 64bit ISO directly, use zsync to download, or Torrent it.
Optionally, check the ISO against the md5sum: 58ddedd193465e355d9609406b1932e4
- Use unetbootin, LinuxLiveUSB creator, dd, or grml2usb to create a bootable flash drive. You can also use software like grml-rescueboot to add the ISO to grub. XMir does not support Virtual Machines at this time, so trying it in a VM will only give you the fallback to X.org.
- To confirm that you are running XMir, open a new terminal and type
ps ax | grep system-comp. You should see several lines of output with unity-system-compositor in them.
