Screen and framebuffer support. - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hello to all, I would like to know if there is a way of using the framebuffer device under a Screen session for watching images with programs that use it for this purpose like Fbi. Thank you....

    You'd have to explain the full functionality of what you WANT.

    So you are sitting at a linux console, where you can use ALT F1, ALT F2,
    etc, to switch between consoles, yet you want screen to be there to allow
    you to switch between screens on the one console ?

    Is that all ?

    Or do you want screen to be like X, a network client/server thing.

    Screen already IS a "network clent/server thing".

    And it already allows you to switch between screens (ptys) on the one console.
    (tty)

    It just only runs textmode applications.

    He and I and a lot of others wish it ran graphical applications too, but
    not using X, which is bloated and has redundant networking capabilities
    that screen already has.

    No it isnt. you can telnet in and use it. The network client/server thing
    you are using is telnet(rsh,ssh,etc).

    What I think what he wants is a network system for transporting fbi from
    one machine to another.

     
    console. 

    yes, I realise that. and it is persistent, in case of network /modem (etc)
    disconnect.

    Are these the features that he wants when he wants an "FBI screen" ?

    Or is it the across the "network thing" - remote operation - only ?


     


    To remove the bloat when running only a simply application, you can just
    install the Xlibs package, and run the vnc server. the client can run the
    non-X client!.

    All I want to do, Leon, is run X-apps locally or HAVE them run on a remote
    machine. Any transfer of graphics or text from these applications can be
    done with just uuencoded files sent via any of a number of "file transfer
    protocols."

    Can't see why X couldn't be running on another tty than the one I am logged
    in on and accept piped commands from my tty and re-direct any output to files
    and transfer them to the login tty....????

    Any guidance on this?
