Fwd: Re: two computer dual head idea (ideas please!)
Ok, I've learned that I can't do exactly this.....but ihave another
there is a window that's open by some process (may be the parent window
or a child)...
...is it possable to re-direct that window to another display?
ie. move window X from display localhost:0.0 to otherhost:0.0
can this be done from outside the program? can a child window run on a
display other than it's parent (like an "open file" window)?
ps. please cc me your responces.
