X11 utilities
  4 reviews

An X client is a program that interfaces with an X server (almost always via the X libraries), and thus with some input and output hardware like a graphics card, monitor, keyboard, and pointing device (such as a mouse).

This package provides a miscellaneous assortment of X utilities that ship with the X Window System, including:
- appres, editres, listres and viewres, which query the X resource database;
- luit, a filter that can be run between an arbitrary application and a
UTF-8 terminal emulator;
- xdpyinfo, a display information utility for X;
- xdriinfo, query configuration information of DRI drivers;
- xev, an X event displayer;
- xfd, a tool that displays all the glyphs in a given X font;
- xfontsel, a tool for browsing and selecting X fonts;
- xkill, a tool for terminating misbehaving X clients;
- xlsatoms, which lists interned atoms defined on an X server;
- xlsclients, which lists client applications running on an X display;
- xlsfonts, a server font list displayer;
- xmessage, a tool to display message or dialog boxes;
- xprop, a property displayer for X;
- xvinfo, an Xv extension information utility for X;
- xwininfo, a window information utility for X;
The editres and viewres programs use bitmap images provided by the xbitmaps package. The luit program requires locale information from the libx11-data package.
