     6== Introduction ==
     7Version 1.0 adds support for "desktop mode", which is the ability to run a full desktop session in a window instead of having each individual window forwarded separately.
     8
     9This behaviour is similar to VNC, but with the added benefits of the xpra protocol: sound, printer forwarding, etc.

     14== Usage ==
     15
     16To start a desktop session simply run:
     17{{{
     18xpra start-desktop --start=xterm
     19}}}
     20Then connect as usual from the client.
     21
     22Alternatively, you can start a session and connect in one command from the client using the ssh syntax:
     23{{{
     24xpra start-desktop --start=xterm ssh:HOST
     25}}}
     26}}}
     27
     28{{{#!div class="box"
     29== Window Manager or Desktop Environment ==
     30
     31In order to run a window manager or even a full desktop environment within this desktop session, simply replace the "xterm" example above with the command that starts the WM or DE of your choice, ie for "fluxbox":
     32{{{
     33xpra start-desktop --start=fluxbox
     34}}}
     35}}}
