View Full Version : X programming

Hi geeks.

I'm searching for something that I need to know the internal mechanism of Xorg. So I need to know how to write a program directly using X libraries not "gtk+", "qt", etc...

Although I've written some primary apps using X libraries but I need some more detailed document that describes all aspects of X as a programmer point of view.

Do you know any useful tutorial web site or book or document or anything that you think is handy.

Have you looked at the Man pages for X to start with? not really code info but standard workings that are good to know, also look at http://www.x.org/wiki/DeveloperStart perhaps :)

Here is one source:
