XShuffler allows easy configuration of X11 implementation startup.

This application alters your xinitrc file and could cause your X11 implementation to stop working. Please use it with caution. This beta has few docs although it does have a number of redundant backup methods to protect your orginal and working configurations. Currently XShuffler is only known to work with XDarwin however it may work with other implementations. Laze E Software and AGDesign cannot be held responsible for possible damage caused by proper or improper use of this application. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

What's New

Version 1.1:
  • Improved support/bug report feature
  • Streamlined the code.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.2 or later, and a Fink for installation of Window Managers, an XFree86 implementation which uses standard config files (not X11).

Really needs to be redone for Apple's client - I grabbed this because I thought it's give me fast results with the Apple beta, and quit when realizing I had to do as much to adapt it as I'd do anyway by hand.

If you use Apple's X11 then you do not need to use something like this since you are not given the choices that XFree86 gives you. You cannot choose a desktop environment or window manager and Apple's X11 does not honor .xinitrc files.

That is completely false. I have only run Apple's X11 since upgrading to Panther and it most certainly does use .xinitrc files. Here's mine, which can support Apple's X11 or XDarwin via fink:


#!/bin/sh

# set up the fink path if needed
if [ -f /sw/bin/init.sh ]; then source /sw/bin/init.sh; fi

# set up the X11 paths
userresources=$HOME/.Xresources
usermodmap=$HOME/.Xmodmap
sysresources=/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit/.Xresources
sysmodmap=/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit/.Xmodmap

# merge in defaults and keymaps
if [ -f $sysresources ]; then xrdb -merge $sysresources; fi
if [ -f $sysmodmap ]; then xmodmap $sysmodmap; fi
if [ -f $userresources ]; then xrdb -merge $userresources; fi
if [ -f $usermodmap ]; then xmodmap $usermodmap; fi

# correct for locale problems
unset LANG




# Start the proper window manager and programs

# Find out if X11 is running at all
x11pid=$(cat /tmp/.X0-lock)
if [ $x11pid -ne 0 ] ; then

# Determine if "XDarwin" is running
isXDarwin="`ps -x -o command | grep XDarwin | grep -v grep | wc -l`"
if [ $isXDarwin -ne 0 ] ; then
twm &
xterm -geometry 120x54+10+10
fi

# Determine if "X11.app" is running
isApple="`ps -x -o command | grep X11.app | grep -v grep | wc -l`"
if [ $isApple -ne 0 ] ; then
quartz-wm &
xterm -geometry 120x54+10+30 -fa Monaco -fs 10
fi

#/sw/bin/startkde > /tmp/kde.log 2>&1
fi

I agree with the second poster. X11 does honor .xinitrc. What's needed is quick way to switch desktops, as is offered in some unix desktop managers like Enlightenment or Windowmaker. I would bet that most X-windows users are working through X11, since it's included with Apple.

I know that people using an x11 implementation are of a higher user level than the average user, but it would be nice if some of you took a moment to file bug reports opr other wise let me know how the application is working.
