This application is unmaintained since 2012:
I've just tried it and it didn't even work without xpra on my system...

Surprisingly, it did sort of work better via xpra, in that at least a
window showed up on the edge of my screen.
And it didn't have any title bar, but the application itself doesn't
seem to be doing anything.

If you do want to track this down, you should provide more information,
