View All Add an attachment proposed patch, testcase, etc. It is also generally slow compared to X11 performance on Linux. Tested system: Xquartz 2. I think earlier versions of XQuartz might not have had this problem. On my Mac mini, the program takes around 42 sec on 8-bit color, and over five minutes on the default bit color settings, which means the bit case is more than 7x slower.

The same program run on Linux via a modest PC-based virtual machine with bit color takes about 16 seconds I realize that this is not a direct comparison, but a factor of 20 difference in speed doesn't seem right.

I don't have access to other Mac systems, so I don't know exactly what combination of OS X version, XQuartz version, or hardware, seem to have this problem. Hopefully someone will come along and start working on libxcwm and XtoQ at some point, but it looks like there's nobody interested in working on the long-term solution.

Your Answer

Is it a debug issue or a re-write? Does someone just need to re-compile or something simple?

I'm using the nmrDraw program, which is developed by Frank. I don't know if this is useful or not, but I have found the slowdown only occurs in the foreground X11 window.

For example, if I have two instances of nmrDraw open, both maximized to fill my screen: - if I force a redraw in the foreground instance, the process takes 10 seconds. If I switch to colours, the redraw takes 1 second no matter how I do it. As of that time XBoard is completely unusable on MacOSX for that reason, as a chess moves now take more than 1 second to draw. The forum discussion also mentions some actions that alleviated the issue.

Changing the display to colors doesn't solve the problem because in that mode the pieces are not even drawn the board becomes a large grey area. Comment 9 Frank Delaglio UTC Other developers show that this X11 slowdown is still a critical problem, and has been for about two years.

What has to be done to get this fixed, and why doesn't Apple seem to care? This isn't an Apple product. Apple through me has explained what the solution is, but so far nobody has been interested in implementing it. As such, this will likely never be fixed. You said "Apple through me has explained what the solution is".

Could you give us any additional hints about what it is? IIRC, you needed to recompile sshd or use xauth manually. Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. Asked 10 years, 5 months ago.

In fairness, I ended up using VNC since the app my users wanted to use wouldn't have worked with X11 forwarding anyway. However, your answer currently has what seems to be the most information on actually getting it to work so Well, fair enough.

I'll have to play with it some more some time. Matthew Flaschen. I don't think I stand corrected. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google. Sign up using Facebook. Sign up using Email and Password. Post as a guest Name.
