Hi,

Have You ever heard anything about the Xvfb? Well, this X server is a bit different from the usual Xorg, because it sends the output to the memory. So with that, We 'll Can use GUI based programs (which Can be controlled from the FFp terminal), without any physical display output. :)

Why I need this? To be honest, just for curious. :) I want to run a Firefox browser with one GreaseMonkey script 7/24 on my NAS. But I Couldn't find any headless FF ARM build...

What Do You think, Can it be done (I mean for example: is the stock kernel supports it)? And what about the performance? 512 MB ram is enough for that? :roll:

Many thanks!

You are aware that you don't need an X server on your box in order to run graphical programs? You can use the X server on your desktop/laptop to run X clients on the NAS.
Some years ago I could run programs like xeyes and xedit on my NAS, while the graphical output was on my computer, 200km away. X has always had a client/server model, and to pipe that over network is (almost) trivial.

The problem is that you need to compile a ****load of dependencies, to run any non-trivial program. Font management is hard. The xedit I used had only some bitmapped font.

I don't think you need kernel support for this. An X server is a user mode program, you only need kernel support to access the video card. So if you omit the video card, no kernel involvement is left.

512MB is enough to run some simple graphical programs. I have somewhere an old EPC-700, with 128MB and a 333MHz Mips SoC, which does it's job well. But Firefox isn't a simple program, I don't think the user experience will be great. There are lighter browsers like Dillo.

Thanks for Your answer Mijzelf! :) Well, I know something about the SSH X connection, but somebody told me, it only works if I have the same GDE on my PC. Well, if I only want to launch Firefox, it Can be done easily on my NAS and with my Ubuntu PC (if I compile the FF for the NAS)? :o

That sounds good! So an SSH based X connection is good for me, or what Do You recommend?

Yes, that's true, but AFAIK only the Chrome and the Firefox supports the GreaseMonkey plugin.

That's not true.

*If* you compile FF it should be easy to get the X connection right. But compiling FF will not be easy.
Code:

Of course it's not all necessary, but it gives an idea.

I don't see the point in running a browser on your NAS. What can it do what can't be done locally? I can imagine some tools which can work on the local filesystem of the NAS.

In each case I'd start with something simple, like xeyes.

Well, as I said, there is a GreaseMonkey Javascript which runs always at the background on an RPi2 now. But if my NAS Can do it, I am interested in it. But this dependencie list is a bit disappointed me... :?

So you have a browser open 24/7 which runs a script? I guess that is some Ajax functionality? Can't that be emulated by a shell or python script?
