#2743 closed enhancement (fixed)

client to listen on local sockets

Reported by: Antoine Martin Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: major Milestone: 4.1
Component: client Version: 3.0.x
Keywords: Cc:


Add local unix domain sockets and named pipes to #2406.

Those sockets will need a different identifier than the display.. not sure what. PID?

Mostly done in r27047.

Added more info in r27048.

Still TODO macos and win32 support: just socket paths?

  • r27049 name-pipe fix
  • r27050 answer id requests so we can ignore client sockets in the mdns session gui
  • r27051 win32 fix
  • r27053 + r27055 macos fix
  • r27054 macos: fix subcommands (ie: list)

Remaining issues:

  • pids look like display numbers and could be interpreted as such if any of the client directories are mistaken for a server socket directory
  • win32 shadow servers fail to create named-pipe listener (new? caused by r27049?)

Resolution: fixed
Status: assignedclosed



  • list clients (to be improved in #2856):
    xpra list --socket-dirs=$XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/xpra/clients/
  • if there's only one, this will work:
    xpra info --socket-dirs=$XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/xpra/clients/
  • enable keyboard debug:
    xpra control socket:///$XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/xpra/clients/localhost.localdomain-131651 debug enable keyboard
