    You are most welcome, glad you enjoyed it. I am sure you can adapt it for a variety of needs ...

    ssh -X comes to mind.

    Question Re: How-to run Multiple (Virtual) X sessions

    hey, is it possible to edit the script to add like (if I wanted) 15 different X sessions? ie: KDE4, blackbox etc...

    and if so, how?

    15

    well, first you are limited to 6 by the default settings.

    Other then that go for it

    X sessions are numbered starting with 0

    startx -- :0

    then comes 1 , 2 , 3 ... up to 14

    so

    startx /path/window_mananger_1 -- :0
    startx /path/window_manager_2 -- :1
    ...
    startx /path/window_manager_15 -- :14

    Now you can number your x sessions any way you wish (yo do not need to start with 0 and go to 14), up to 99

    Re: How-to run Multiple (Virtual) X sessions

    bodhi.zazen, thanks for the VirtualX script!
    I'm running into a problem, however.

    When I run it from the gnome session (and select gnome), the screen goes black for a moment, and then I'm popped back to the gnome session.

    When I run it from tty1 (and select gnome), I get the grey mosaic pattern and the X cursor. No usual gnome session. None of the mouse buttons do anything. I pressed Ctrl-Alt-Backspace, and was sent back to tty1.

    Okay, confession #1: I use fvwm as my window manager instead of metacity.

    Confession #2: I don't have xscreensaver or numlockx installed, so I commented out those lines.

    Here is the slight change I made to the script:
    Code:
    % diff ~/bin/virtualX-orig /usr/local/bin/virtualX
    64,65c64,65
    < 		DISPLAY=:2.0 /usr/bin/xscreensaver &
    < 		DISPLAY=:2.0 /usr/bin/numlockx on &
    ---
    > #		DISPLAY=:2.0 /usr/bin/xscreensaver &
    > #		DISPLAY=:2.0 /usr/bin/numlockx on &
    73c73
    < 		/usr/bin/startx /usr/bin/gnome-session -- :2 2> /dev/null &
    ---
    > 		/usr/bin/startx /usr/bin/gnome-session -- :2 2> $HOME/.virtualX-errors &
    And here is what I found in .virtualX-errors:
    Code:
    xauth:  creating new authority file /home/shark/.serverauth.8154
    xauth:  error in locking authority file /home/shark/.Xauthority
    xauth:  error in locking authority file /home/shark/.Xauthority

    Any idea where I'm going wrong?
