Hi all,

I also need more info about this command.
I tried :
xpra control :DISPLAY encoding help
Result is "set encoding to help for 2 windows"
But encoding must be rgb, png, jpeg, webp,...
Try with other 1st argument :
xpra control :DISPLAY client help
Result is "client control command 'help' forwarded to 0 clients
In this ticket <http://xpra.org/trac/ticket/461>, I found "xpra control
:DISPLAY client show_session_info"
It will show session info dialog in client-side.
Can I get more 2nd, 3rd argument similiar with 'show_session_info' ? Maybe
'show_bug_report', 'show_bug_report save path' , or 'raise_windows' ?
Can I get all info in statistic tab of session info and put it to a file by
a/some command(s) at client-side ?
