OK, could be great if only…

For this app to be great, it would need a few things:

a) importing the settings from the lite/demo version, switching from the lite/demo means setting up all clients again from scratch

b) support for Apple MagicKeyboard; an iPad Pro with MagicKeyboard would make a perfect X11 Terminal, but mouse pointer remains in a mode that is appropriate for a touch screen, and doesn’t recognize/change to reflect the touch pad used.

c) Allow to lock the screen size to the actual display. Even with the proper screen size chosen, one can still scroll the screen, which is annoying.

d) client templates, like e.g. for using Xephyr to get a remote desktop x11 session, this can be quite useful e.g. operating a Raspberry Pi connected over USB-C networking to an iPad Pro. It’s a nifty way of getting a programming environment and Mathematica by attaching a cigarette pack sized box to the iPad.

It really is all there, it just needs some polish, and that would make all the difference between “OK, gets the job done, somehow, but is still annoying” and “Great, it’s a joy to use.”

Needed functionality

Basic functionality is present but there are glitches. App gets confused when you are using a BT keyboard. You have to toggle it off bring up the on screen keyboard and switch the BT keyboard on again to get it to work.

works fine for me

I use this on an iPad to connect to macOS Catalina running XQuartz. I find it works just fine for the apps I use. I just tap the ipad, so can't say about BT.

Many thanks to the developer for keeping X11 alive .. long live X11 .. boo hiss to Wayland.
