Yes .. I am trying things backwards because there is basically not very much out there right now. I was able to prove the mir was actually running as a process using htop but, because of the way the code is set up I am unable to sustain it and only get verification after I have exited. So you are correct. That was an erroneous assumption on my part. All part of the fun of working on teh edge of Ubuntu lol

It is very unstable. You have to CTRL+c Then you have to hit enter so it will not lock up on you and blank the page but you will see mir loaded in htop.Code:(sleep 30; mir) & mir & htop ; kill $!
Now to get it to run concurrent/stable.
Would You try similar command with some other display server instead? What would You expect to happen?Code:(sleep 30; mir) & mir & htop ; kill $!
Again, do You understand role of "&" in shell line?
I am now able to get htop to run stable.
The command is
When htop loads it has mir startx and then htop below it. It is a very simple code. It appears that mir is calling Xserver and then loading htop?Code:mir & htop
It takes up 100% of one side of a dual core. I am not trying to be a pain. Just trying different code. I studied Vax Unix in 1990 and did batch files in the 80's with DOS. But Linux and X I am just getting a handle on.
So .. when I run 'mir" which is an executable file and use the "&" character to run 'htop' on mir (I assume). No man pages for mir as of yet. However mir is calling 'startx'. So .. if you decide to try it you will see 'mir startx' at the top of htop and htop below it.
I'll get another pic.

Pic of htop and mir.
