I am currently using Exceed to handle individual X windows being displayed back to my Windows machine and this works flawlessly. I'm using Windows as my Window manager, but I have also experimented with various "X Windows Managers" (i.e.,
gnome-wm) to no avail.
The issue I'm having is the graphics being displayed back on individual applications is poor compared to what I am seeing when forwarding a full gnome-Desktop/gnome-session over the same Exceed connection. In fact, if I run an instance of gnome-session over X11 I am able to launch applications with their standard a high quality "look" as directly connected to the machine. However, if I just use a window manager and display back single applications (not a full desktop/session) the quality reverts to a poorer more basic design.
Is there anyway to launch
gnome-session against a single application vice having to create a whole desktop instance? Or a way to use its graphics engine to render the application as it would be in a normal session/desktop environment? I thought the
gnome-wm would do the trick, but no luck.
