This application implements a mostly-complete X11 server, running natively in Android. It allows X Window System applications to be run remotely and displayed on an Android device with internet access.

Note that this application does not come with a window manager. However, it is possible to run a window manager remotely, which is fiddly but seems to work.

This is still a beta release, so feel free to report any bugs you find, or, better yet, fix them yourself. Yes, it's open source, hosted at http://code.google.com/p/android-xserver/

    Even if it's slow and not all the keys on the keyboard work and the mouse doesn't click, the author deserves kudos. In most cases this is what it takes to connect: xprogram --display x.x.x.x:0.0

    It's okay. It sort of works. The one complaint I have is that it doesn't use RANDR extension, which it reminds me every time I start something like GIMP or GPicView.

    Some simple instructions on how to tell applications to connect to it or configure connectbot would be worth the extra stars, right now its just a waste of space
