osx2x is a small Mac OS X application that lets you control other machines running either an X11 server or a VNC server using your Mac's mouse and keyboard. So if you happen to have a mac and either an X Windows machine or a machine running VNC on your desk you only need to use a single keyboard and mouse! This may sound like a very esoteric thing to need, and you'd be right, but some people have just that need, and thus osx2x was born.

What's New

Version 2x version 2.3.tom: Release notes were unavailable when this listing was updated.

Same errors happened at my 10.5 environment (i386).

Fourtunately I found the source code, then I made a patch and sent it to the author a week ago.
Normally I should wait that a revised version is released by him, but if you may want to use it very urgently, so I can send the patch or a patched binary by e-mail.

Excellent program, I use it every day to control my work PCs. If the developer could add a Ctrl-Alt-Delete shortcut, I'd be able to unplug my PC keyboard completely!

It's supposed to do it already (Menu Control > Send Ctrl+Alt+Del) but it doesn't work.

I find this program to be a very useful tool. There are a couple of bugs such as the occasional corrupt preferences that prevent the program from starting up and a strange processor hogging issue that is infrequent but annoying.

It's dead simple to setup and use though which I appreciate a lot!

It looks as though it hasn't been updated in awhile, so i'm hoping it will be revamped eventually.

I am looking for a French keyboard version.
Is it already in development, or should I forget about it ?

This program worked great a couple of times, and now everytime I launch it the application's icon will just bounce in the dock and will quit responding. I have deleted all traces of it and completely reinstalled it 3 or 4 other times and it still just bounces. When the bugs get worked out then this app will be one of my favorites.

The same thing happened to me do you have any idea how to fix that?

This happened to me, also. I deleted osx2x.plist, and it works now. Just do a search for the file and delete it. I hope this helps.

Wonderful program, it's dramatically changed the way I work. One keyboard/mouse, instead of three, gives me so much more space.

One problem I have is that it seems to transpose the '?' and '|' characters (standard US keyboard). I'd notify the developer, but the website doesn't give contact information.

It's great, I can just move the mouse out of the PB monitor and it appears on the PC-monitor (Win2000) where I can continue to work with the same, just one keyboard on my desk.

Thanks a lot!
