apt-get install xpra python-cups

Could not get it to work.

tom@zoe:~$ cat .xpra/:100.log
/usr/lib/xorg/Xorg.wrap: Only console users are allowed to run the X server
2016-11-16 22:32:23,005 
2016-11-16 22:32:23,006 Xvfb command has terminated! xpra cannot continue
2016-11-16 22:32:23,006  if the display is already running, try a different one,
2016-11-16 22:32:23,006  or use the --use-display flag
2016-11-16 22:32:23,006 

nice idea but I guess i don't understand how this is supposed to work.

starting it manually in the text console seemed to work:
$ xpra start :100 --start-child=xterm

then attach
$ xpra attach ssh:localhost:100

can this also run a window manager?
maybe that makes little sense.

EDIT: how to use this?
- (main?) emacs X11 window
- icedove
