X11 apps on Ubuntu Touch?
April 16, 2013 4:44 AM   Subscribe

Ubuntu touch preview does not use X11 for graphics. The repository for armhf contains virtually all apps available in desktop Ubuntu, but they cannot be run directly on the tablet (Nexus 10 in my case). Is there a way to run those using a virtual X-server, perhaps passing through local VNC to be displayed? I have ssh access to the device, so I can run commands normally.

Best answer: No idea.

Try here: #ubuntu-touch on irc.freenode.net

Response by poster: The answer is that it currently cannot, but is moving to Mir which is planned to have X11 compatibility.
