Maybe my wording was a bit misleading. What I meant was this patch:


This indeed patches the libXinerama that is built from the nx-x11 tree
(in nx-X11/lib/Xinerama/Xinerama.c). And that's the one that is
distributed in x2go and provided via LD_LIBRARY_PATH to have xinerama

Ok, I have not seen a detailed list of the planned steps, does such a
thing exist?
