Hack to run X apps on Qtopia

Note: DO NOT TRY THIS! Unless you want to destroy your Qtopia installation ;-) And it's still really unusable...

Description

Background

Qtopia is really very nice piece of software but there is one big issue - there are no more applications than these ones in default installation + some few more other (and mostly old) apps around Internet. But for official OpenMoko distribution (which is running on X11) there are many applications - it's really easy to port them from desktop version to phone version (often only cross compilation is sufficient). Currently we are missing browser, IM etc...

The idea

The idea is to run fake X11 server, then export this session by VNC and use some Qtopia-able VNC client to display it. Around this hack we should provide some scripts to automatize it and do small hacks to VNC client.

Preparations

FSO testing repository (see Repositories#FSO)

Installation

opkg install x11vnc xserver-kdrive-xfake

Now your Qtopia installation is dead ;-) Reinstall with Nokia provided updater.

Install Keypebble VNC client with Software Packages app.

Running

Xfake :1 --screen 480x640 &

export DISPLAY=:1

x11vnc &

and run some X application
