Download Source Package xbase-clients:
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 several dozen X clients that ship with the X Window System, including:
- startx and xinit, which initialize X sessions from the command line; - xauth, a tool for controlling access to the X session; - xedit, a text editor; - xbiff, a tool which tells you when you have new email; - xcalc, a scientific calculator desktop accessory; - xclipboard, a tool to manage cut-and-pasted text selections; - xcutsel, which exchanges selection and cut buffer contents; - xconsole, which monitors system console messages; - xditview, a viewer for ditroff output; - xeyes, a demo program in which a pair of eyes track the pointer; - xfd, a tool that displays all the glyphs in a given X font; - xfontsel, a tool for browsing and selecting X fonts; - xhost, a very dangerous program that you should never use; - xkill, a tool for terminating misbehaving X clients; - xload, a monitor for the system load average; - xlogo, a demo program that displays the X logo; - xmag, which magnifies parts of the X screen; - xman, a manual page browser; - xmessage, a tool to display message or dialog boxes; - xrandr, a command-line interface to the RandR extension; - xrefresh, a tool that forces a redraw of the X screen; - xsetroot, a tool for tailoring the appearance of the root window; - xtrapchar, xtrapin, xtrapinfo, xtrapout, xtrapproto, xtrapreset, and xtrapstats, a group of sample clients that use the XTrap extension; - xvidtune, a tool for customizing X server modelines for your monitor; - xwd, a utility for taking window dumps ("screenshots") of the X session; - xwud, a viewer for window dumps created by xwd; - oclock and xclock, graphical clocks; - beforelight, a screen saver; - atobm, a converter from ASCII to X bitmap (.xbm) files; - bitmap, a monochrome bitmap file editor; - bmtoa, a tool that converts a monochrome bitmap to ASCII text; - cxpm and sxpm, tools for checking and viewing X pixmap files; - iceauth, a tool for manipulating ICE protocol authorization records; - xset, a tool for setting miscellaneous X server parameters; - xmodmap, a utility for modifying keymaps and pointer button mappings in X; - xsetmode and xsetpointer, tools for handling X Input devices; - setxkbmap, xkbbell, xkbcomp, xkbevd, xkbprint, xkbvleds, and xkbwatch, tools for managing the X Keyboard Extension (XKB); - xsm, a session manager for X sessions; - smproxy, a session manager proxy for X clients that do not use the X session manager protocol; - xgamma, a tool for querying and setting a monitor's gamma correction; - appres, editres, listres, viewres, and xrdb, which query and update the X resource database; - Xmark, x11perf, and x11perfcomp, tools for benchmarking graphical operations under the X Window System; - fstobdf, which retrieves a font in BDF format from an X font server; - xcmsdb, a device color characteristic utility for the X Color Management System; - xstdcmap, a utility to selectively define standard colormap properties; - xev, an X event displayer; - xfindproxy, a tool to locate X proxy services; - 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; - xprop, a property displayer for X; - xdpyinfo, a display information utility for X; - xwininfo, a window information utility for X; - xvinfo, an Xv extension information utility for X; - ico, an X graphics demo using an animated polyhedron; - dga, a demo program for the DGA extension; and - xgc, an (unfinished) X graphics demo program.
The bitmap, editres, viewres, xbiff, xcalc, xconsole, xditview, xedit, xf86cfg, xman, xsetroot, and xsm programs use bitmap images provided by the xlibs-data package. xkbcomp uses the XKEYBOARD (XKB) extension configuration data provided by the xlibs package.
(Strictly speaking, atobm does not depend on any X libraries, but it shares a manual page with bitmap and bmtoa, and so is grouped with them in this package.)
This package no longer provides the 'mkfontscale' program; it has instead been moved to xutils.
