Testing XMir on Xubuntu
Xubuntu will continue to use Xorg for 13.10, read this post for more information. You are still welcome to test the images here.
- Download Vivid Vervet release images.
- Use unetbootin, LinuxLiveUSB creator, dd, or grml2usb to create a bootable flash drive. You can also use software like grml-rescueboot to add the ISO to grub. XMir does not support Virtual Machines at this time, so trying it in a VM will only give you the fallback to X.org.
- After booting the system, a terminal window with the unity-system-compositor log will display.
- To confirm that you are running XMir, open a new terminal and type
ps ax | grep system-comp. You should see several lines of output with unity-system-compositor in them.
