Xvfb service

Moved from systemd/Services. -- Alad (talk) 10:43, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

Change the User= and Group= parameters:

Description=xinit with xvfb

ExecStart=/usr/bin/xvfb-run bash %h/.xinitrc


rename article

Continuing from Talk:Systemd/Services, as described in wikipedia:Xvfb#Usage_scenarios x11vnc and xorg-server-xvfb are closely related in context. It might make sense to remove the semi-good redirect on Headless With X, move this article to Headless with X, create a small section on Xvfb with the service in above item and crosslink the current redirect to Xorg#Monitor_settings instead. --Indigo (talk) 11:00, 14 May 2015 (UTC)

One problem I see is that x11vnc wouldn't be able to appear anymore in Category:Remote desktop, which I find instead useful (x11vnc isn't only useful on headless machines). It's going to be interesting to read other opinions, but maybe a Headless system page could be created separately and aggregate more generic tips that might be lying around (no research done), of course linking to this article too. — Kynikos (talk) 14:22, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
Well, I have not used xorg-server-xvfb, but according to wikipedia:Xvfb#Remote_control_over_SSH it could well benefit from being in the same article as X11vnc (and that both could be in the remote desktop category imo; x11vnc to mirror a physical display, xvfb a virtual one). Is a rename to X11vnc and X11xvfb better? Changed my mind, your idea is better. When replying I looked more at the wikipedia article and forgot all we want at current is to find a home for the service file, main point of xvfb is indeed headless (be it localhost or remote).
I like your idea to create a separate Headless system 'hub' page & see how it could well be done that way too. Other important related articles are Install_from_SSH, PXE Diskless_system. (Maybe this new one should be tracked in ArchWiki:Requests#Creation_requests) --Indigo (talk) 19:20, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

from DXPC which had no content - I've deleted it for now, but we can reinstate a redirect after creating Headless system. -- Alad (talk) 20:19, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
