    X Window System / X11 server for Android, complete and fully functional.
    You may use it to stream applications from your Linux PC, or to launch Linux installed on your Android (installing Linux is done via separate app).

    3D acceleration and OpenGL are not supported. If you're launching X clients from PC, you can install VirtualGL to use OpenGL in this app.

    Touch screen with two fingers to send right mouse button click, with three fingers to send middle button click. You can also press button on your stylus, or use Bluetooth mouse.
    Swipe with two fingers to scroll documents.
    Finger hover is supported on select devices. If you have Galaxy S4/Note 3 device, enable AirView in system settings to use it.

    To invoke keyboard, press Back key. Non-English text input is not supported in terminal, but it works in GUI applications.

    If you don't see Back key, swipe up from the bottom of the screen.

    If you have hardware Menu key, it will send Ctrl-Z (Undo in most apps).

    You can disable gyroscope in Mouse emulation Advanced Gyroscope.

    You can enable portrait screen orientation and 24bpp color depth in Change device config Video.

    To set custom display number, go to Change device config Data installation location Specify directory do not change directory, press OK change parameters to XSDL :1234, press OK, where 1234 is your display number. You may also pass other parameters to Xserver using this dialog.

    To connect to the display manager on your PC, add parameter -query your.PC.IP.address to the Xserver command line, then configure your display manager.

    If you have XDM, you will need to remove a line starting with :0 from /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers , add * to /etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess , and set DisplayManager*authorize: false in /etc/X11/xdm/xdm-config , to disable local X server and allow connections from external IP addresses.

    If you want SHM extension to work in Linux chroot - download file from here:
    copy it to chroot, set executable flag, and execute this in chroot before other commands:
    export LD_PRELOAD=/path/to/

    .APK file for side-loading and old versions:

    Worked the first time I tried it on my Acer Chromebook R 11 (model CB5-132T-C1LK with 4GB RAM and 32GB storage), but hasn't worked properly since. Now it starts over and over again, and X windows apps no longer display at all. Even when it did work, the X app was only quarter-screen in size, and I couldn't see the top app menu. I need something that works better than this. I'll probably install Crouton/LXDE or GalliumOS to run Ubuntu along side Chrome OS instead of running Debian within Android.

    Works great! On my Galaxy Tab A 8.0, I had to select native resolution and 0.5 font scaling for everything to display correctly. It even works with Samsung S Pen, but when trying to right click with the pen, Samsung air command comes up at the same time, but that isn't really an issue for me because it's supposed to do that.

    It works well with GNURoot Debian and LXDE. A bit slow, but it's good.

    Works great however mouse emulation is annoying with the keyboard up and doesn't play nicely with external keyboards
