ok, I'm still lost. I decided to give xpra 0.9.0-1 another try.

1. Format of partition and fresh install of Ubuntu 13.04 x64 Desktop
without any updates or add-ons .
2. Boot, login, "sudo su -" to root
3. apt-get install curl


4. curl http://winswitch.org/gpg.asc | apt-key add -
5. apt-get update
6. apt-get install winswitch

this results in no install. "E: Unable to locate package winswitch". Try xpra:

7. apt-get install xpra

apt-get install xpra
