Hi Alex,
(re-adding #872 to Cc:, dropping x2go-dev instead)

X2Go Client needs to test the remote x2goagent version and check  
whether it is << 3.5.99.0 or >= 3.5.99.0. If it is >= 3.5.99.0, the  
new Xinerama support will be present (once we have released 3.5.99.0,  
at the moment the code has not been merged). If the new Xinerama code  
is present, then there is no need for the xinerama.conf server-side  
writing/updating anymore.

I think that too, see X2GoBTS #873 [1].

> Should user still have possibility to turn Xinerama off? I can still

This is a good question. I don't think that we should include the  
xinerama.conf part in nxagent anymore, but a way for switching off the  
Xinerama extension should be possible, indeed.

The current plan is to make the cmdline options +xinerama / -xinerama  
(or -extension Xinerama) functional in nxagent. With all previous  
versions of nxagent, this did not have any effect, so far. Ulrich is  
working on that.

Indeed.
