X.org
The X.Org project provides an open source implementation of the X Window System. The development work is being done in conjunction with the freedesktop.org community. The X.Org Foundation is the educational non-profit corporation whose Board serves this effort, and whose Members lead this work. The latest release of the full X.Org stack is X11R7.7, though many individual X.Org modules have had new versions released since then - see the xorg-announce archives for details of those releases. The next full stack release will be X11R7.8. Information about all releases is available.

Returning to Free Software: A Guide A month or two ago, I made a conscious decision that I would return to using as much Free Software as possible. The PRISM debacle of the last week confirmed my fears and reasoning, and so I made the decision to accelerate the schedule. Here’s what I did, and how you can, too. Xorg From The X.Org project provides an open source implementation of the X Window System. The development work is being done in conjunction with the freedesktop.org community. The X.Org Foundation is the educational non-profit corporation whose Board serves this effort, and whose Members lead this work. Xorg is the most popular display server among Linux users.

Xdefaults Xresources is a user-level configuration dotfile, typically located at ~/.Xresources. It can be used to set X resources, which are configuration parameters for X client applications. They can do many operations, including: defining terminal colours configuring terminal preferences setting DPI, antialiasing, hinting and other X font settings changing the Xcursor theme theming xscreensaver altering preferences on low-level X applications (xclock (xorg-xclock), xpdf, rxvt-unicode, etc.)

XQuartz Intro ¶ The XQuartz project is an open-source effort to develop a version of the ​X.org X Window System that runs on OS X. Together with supporting libraries and applications, it forms the X11.app that Apple has shipped with OS X since version 10.5.

Xorg Translation(s): English - French - Italiano Xorg is the default X Window server since Debian 4.0 (etch). It replaces XFree86 and is maintained in Debian by the XStrikeForce. Current Status X Frequently Asked Questions 6.1. X11Forwarding does not work with OpenSSH under Cygwin Try adding the -v option to ssh, which often pinpoints the reason for a connection problem. From the ssh man-page : -v Verbose mode. Causes ssh to print debugging messages about its progress. This is helpful in debugging connection, authentication, and configuration problems.

X Window System A historical example of graphical user interface and applications common to the MIT X Consortium's distribution running under the twm window manager: X Terminal, Xbiff, xload and a graphical manual page browser A modern example of a graphical user interface using X11 and KDE. In computing, the X Window System (X11, X, and sometimes informally X-Windows) is a windowing system for bitmap displays, common on UNIX-like operating systems.

Open Source Apps: the Monster List It's become something of an annual tradition at Datamation to end the year with a gigantic compilation of all the open source software we've surveyed over the past twelve months or so. (See 2010's Open Source Apps: the Ultimate List and 2009's Open Source Software: The Monster List.) This year's retrospective is bigger than ever with 957 excellent open source applications featured. The complete list is a lot to handle in one sitting, so we've divided it into categories. Also, please note that the projects in each category are listed in alphabetical order, not from best to worst or vice versa. As always, if you'd like to add a project to list, feel free to do so in the comments section below.

xorg.conf The file xorg.conf is a file used for configuring the X.Org Server. While typically located in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, its location may vary across operating system distributions (See manual, "man xorg.conf" for details and further possible locations). For a long time, editing xorg.conf was necessary for advanced input devices and multiple monitor output to work correctly. In modern systems this is seldom necessary due to input hotplugging and the XRandR extension integrated into new X.org releases. Some devices still require manual editing, notably components utilizing proprietary drivers may require explicit configuration, in order for Xorg to load them. Window Managers for X: FVWM License: GPL Activity Rating: High Fvwm, developed by Robert Nation, was once dominant in the window manager stakes, especially in the Linux community. It borrows heavily from Tom LaStrange's famous twm window manager, which was the first ICCCM-compliant window manager to be written. Fvwm was designed to minimize memory consumption, provide a 3-D look (similar to from Motif's mwm) and provide a simple virtual desktop. Functionality can be enhanced by the use of various modules.
