I'm not the absolute authority on this, but I get the feeling no standard
X11 apps will work, as the named socket is usually fixed in the X11 library.

Are you aware of the -pn "accept failure to listen on all ports" option,
which will allow listening only on the inet port. You can then use the inet
form of display name. No need for a named socket at all.

Subject: /tmp/.X11-pipe


Hi,

I have compiled a working vnc server as a non-root user. To do this I had
to change the pipe loction to $HOME/tmp/.X11-unix. The server works fine,
but none of the X-clients know where the pipe is. Unforunately I cannot
symlink /tmp/.X11-pipe (it is a Solaris machine) to my directory because
of permission problems.

_X11TransNAMEDOpenClient: No device /tmp/.X11-pipe/X12 for NAMED
connection
_X11TransOpen: transport open failed for local/unix:12
xterm.real Xt error: Can't open display: moss:12

Does anybody know a simple workaround? Do I need to replace a library
(xlib?) with a modified copy?

Thanks in advance,

Roger
