Version 16 (modified by Antoine Martin, 4 years ago) (diff)




Xpra started as screen for X: it allows you to run X11 programs, usually on a remote host, direct their display to your local machine, and then to disconnect from these programs and reconnect from the same or another machine, without losing any state.
It gives you remote access to individual applications. You can see it in action here: screenshots

It now includes much much more than that too, see wiki/Enhancements.


Xpra is "rootless" or "seamless": programs you run under it show up on your desktop as regular programs, managed by your regular window manager.


Sessions can be accessed over SSH, TCP, SSL etc, using the native client available on many platforms or using the built-in HTML5 client.

Xpra is usable over reasonably slow links and does its best to adapt to changing network bandwidth constraints and application behaviour.

Open Source

Xpra is open-source (GPLv2+), multi-platform.
