Description Brice Goglin 2007-02-16 13:27:47 UTC
Reported 2 years ago by Jari Aalto in the Debian BTS, still applies.


The xvfb manual page refers to /usr/tmp, but it would be better to
use normal /tmp for examples

       Xvfb -pixdepths 3 27 -fbdir /usr/tmp
               The server will listen for connections as server number 0, will
               have   the   default   screen   configuration   (one    screen,
               1280x1024x8),  will also support pixmap depths of 3 and 27, and
               will use memory mapped files in /usr/tmp for the framebuffer.

       xwud -in /usr/tmp/Xvfb_screen0
               Displays screen 0 of the server started by the preceding  exam-

Heh - I just noticed this a couple of days ago and changed to /var/tmp 
in master already:
