Parallelization is difficult. Automatic parallelization is a research topic, and nowhere close to being solved — apart from embarrassingly parallel problems (yes, that's the technical term), parallelizing is pretty much requires human guidance and is difficult even with human guidance. The reason parallelizing is difficult is that dispatching a task to ...

Ignoring the fact that your core duo is better than your phone, it may be possible to forward X11 over USB between them (see this wiki for an iOS example that might still be relevant), and install qemu and binfmt on the phone to (SLOWLY) emulate chrome. Otherwise, if you have the knowledge and a lot of time on your hands, you may be able to port desktop ...

X2Go Having had trouble with FreeRDP's server component, I would have tried FreeNX, since NX has been around for a while, but this post pointed out that CentOS 7 now ships with X2Go instead of NX, so I installed that on my CentOS 7 system. When I connected from my Windows 8 machine, it worked well, with sound, except it seemed to make the remote display ...

If I've understood the question correctly: A workstation is running X, and user $USER is logged in User $ADMIN wants to start an X client on that machine, and connect to the X server of $USER. If you have control of the X session's startup, you should be able to arrange (perhaps in $USER's .xsession) to give access to $ADMIN using xhost: xhost ...

The value you're using for DISPLAY is incorrect: if you don't want to use SSH X forwarding, DISPLAY must indicate the IP address of your X server (the desktop you want to display programs on). On the remote, run export DISPLAY=desktop:0 replacing desktop with your local hostname or IP address. You may also need to change your X server's configuration to ...
