There are 2 sorts of hostname entries managed by xauth, local names such as myhost/unix:0 and remote names such as remote:0. The latter are held as ip addresses, but I imagine you are referring to the local names. The hostname part of these are not actually of any significance to X11, but can be used by the xdm tools to distinguish between several local ...

Read through this helpful page of the Arch Wiki: Systemd Targets. Systemd targets are roughly equivalent to the old runlevels when everything used the init system. Change your target from 5(multi-user graphical) to 3(multi-user no graphics). This should drop you into a terminal login screen upon boot. If you want to go graphical just type "startx."

Firefox puts itself in the background and detaches from your terminal if you run it from a terminal. Therefore pressing Ctrl+Z is not really suspending Firefox, it probably suspends xinit. wget and most commandline programs do not have this kind of detaching behaviour. GUI based programs like gedit start mostly like firefox and detach. I looked if there ...

No, there's no KeyHold event, only KeyPress and KeyRelease. KeyPress is sent when the key is pressed, and sent again after a certain amount of time. The time can be configured with xset r (there are two times: time to first repeat, and time to subsequent repeats). A KeyRelease event is sent when the key is actually released (it is not sent while the key is ...

For occational use you could plug xtrace between your client and your server and make the client not see any extensions by using xtrace's -e switch: -e | --denyextensions Modify all server replies to say there are no extensions available. (As xtrace does supports only a small number of extensions anyway and calls all extended ...

If you only want to change the DPI within i3, you could put the command in your i3 config file with the line: exec xrandr --dpi 220 Depending on your distro you will find the config file in different places but often under ~/.config/i3/config

I have no installation to test this, but it seems there might be a "Cinnamon Maximus" extension that removes decorations from fullscreen windows, if your application can go fullscreen, albeit with borders. Aternatively, you might try something radical like setting the window's overrideredirect flag. This asks the window manager not to manage the window. ...

Xorg logs to /var/log/Xorg.n.log where n is the server log file for display n. In newer implementations1, the log file may be found at $HOME/.local/share/xorg/Xorg.n.log. The log will contain all of the currently loaded values for the running display, including any configuration options loaded through conf files in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/. 1. From Xorg ...

You can test this without the rest of pymouse by firing up python and running from Xlib.display import Display display = Display() display.record_create_context which should print <bound method Display.create_context of <Xlib.display.Display instance at ...>> Looks like that corresponds to $ xdpyinfo | grep -i record RECORD (that's ...

OK, I figured out that I have to jump to another tty screen on the box, login, and issue startx from there.

Pressing Ctrl+Z does suspend the application, as in, it stops running until resumed with a SIGCONT (possibly sent through the fg or bg command in the shell). But… You're running xinit, not firefox. Pressing Ctrl+Z sends a STOP signal to the application that's running in the foreground, not to other applications that it may have run. So you've only suspended ...
