2x version 2.3.tom
31 May 2008

Control a remote X11 display from OS X.

Overview

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.

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!

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.

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.
