Description pixelfairy 2017-01-10 03:19:02 UTC
for example, Xwayland could have command instead of path

command=/usr/bin/Xwayland -nolisten tcp -nolisten local

then sandboxes like firejail can make local x servers for apps that cant see eachother, or prevent an app from seeing x11 at all, without having to make a new network namespace.

That's interesting - how do you ensure this with firejail? Does it ship a patched Xwayland to add a new path?

Also, we would need to separately add this to each of Weston, Mutter, KWin, Enlightenment, Sway, Rootston, etc.
