Can anyone recommend me portable X server? i m looking for XMING but it doesnt have normal launcher... any ideas?
Try googling for CygwinX.
>>Cygwin/X is installed via Cygwin's setup.exe and the installation process is documented in the Cygwin/X User's Guide. Whether or not you already have Cygwin installed, you can add Cygwin/X to your installation by downloading the latest setup.exe, running setup, and selecting the 'xorg-x11-base' package from the 'X11' category.
Cygwin is self contained in one directory tree and doesn't use the registry, it is portable. And, since apps installed within Cygwin, stay within Cygwin, they become portable. And CygwinX is an implementation of X-Windows within Cygwin. Isn't that an X-server?
Cygwin too laggy. And doesnt have a launcher.
It doesn't need a launcher, so why spend the time and effort to develop one that isn't needed with all the other opportunities out there. It is still portable.
I don't know what you mean by 'laggy'. Hopefully, you will get other suggestions since you don't care for mine.
Ok. Another thing. I doesnt like xming and cygwinx and need analogue.
Cygwin does actually use the registry, it stores the mount points in there, e.g. where /home actually is (normally C:\cygwin\home, I think). Cygwin fails to a fairly large extent to be portable without modifications, but that's going to change in Cygwin 1.7 (Release Notes).
But there’s no sense crying over every mistake,
You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.
I haven't done any testing for reg or user entries, but I think Xming should be just fine with XLaunch.
I know about Xlaunch. But i need launcher taht automatically connects to the remote machine via SSH, automatic setup X11 forwarding and start Xming - with one click. SecureCRT can made that, but it shereware and not portable
You might want to check these out... I haven't tried them but will be doing so shortly.
(you should be able to hack in the xserver to this though it might be a touch slow)
