Version 4 (modified by Antoine Martin, 5 years ago) (diff)



Almost all xpra features can be configured from the command line or through xpra's configuration files. (some more obscure features can be configured using environment variables)

You can find some example configuration files here: sample /etc/xpra/ directory

The manual can be found online here: http://xpra.org/manual.html. It is also shipped with every binary installations.

The configuration files use the exact same format as the command line options documented in the manual, just without the "--" prefix.

Configuration Files Location

The exact location of the configuration files varies widely from platform to platform, and even from one version of the OS to another...

  • for unix-like operating systems, the system configuration usually lives in /etc/xpra and the per-user settings can be placed in ~/.xpra - you can also run the xpra/platform/path.py script for more details
  • on Mac OS X, we ship a command line tool found under Xpra.app/Contents/Helpers/Path_info which will show you the file locations you can also use - ~/.xpra, although this is deprecated
  • on MS Windows, you can run the Path_info.exe tool found in the Xpra installation folder

Do not edit the system defaults, as those will be overwritten whenever xpra is (re)installed. Use the per-user configuration files instead.
