indeed , i tried this


with the latest version of tar.bz, but it does not work anymore
the python installer sends me an error message
ERROR: cannot find a valid pkg-config package for ['xkbfile', 'libxkbfile']

and i'm not enough at ease with linux to try to guess if there is a package with a different name that i should install in mageia...
anyway may be i can avoid this install if somebody can tell wether xpra can give a fluid experience with multimedia (for instance youtube video)... i mean better than x2go: very low frame rate in HD for youtube... i believe that there is currently no thin client free software  able to give a fluid multimedia experience but may be i'm wrong...

 If Mageia has a full install with development files and rpmbuild, you can build your own rpms from
the tar.bz source file -- that is what I do with openSUSE.  Or, I think you can install using the
python installer.

For troubleshooting you can run from a command line and it will note if there are missing
dependencies.  You can then install the missing dependencies from your package manager.

(Of course, I am about to post my own troubleshooting inquiry to the list!  I have successfully
implemented winswitch on multiple computers and now I have one where I cannot get the server to work.)
