I am trying to implement something like Maxivista (http://www.maxivista.com/
) with X. Basically, it enables a computer to use another computer's monitor as its own extended monitor.
My thought is hook/intercept the drawing functions, and draw the
objects that are out of the main monitor on the second one through the
other computer's xserver. So I am wondering if there is a way to
hook/intercept the drawing requests.
It seems a proxy x server requires the user
starts the proxy x server first before running any x client application
if I want process all the drawing request. Since transparency to the
users is a good design, I want to avoid using proxy x server if
possible. Thank you!
