Documentation for recent versions (Linutop OS V4) is available on


From LinutopWiki

The Linutop's can be used as simple X servers on which other machines can be connected to run an application.

To turn a Linutop into a simple X display:

  • in the Linutop Setup, Advanced tab, check the "Don't start Xorg" box
  • edit /etc/rc.local as root (sudo mousepad /etc/rc.local in a terminal) with something like:
  • reboot

To be able to switch back to a tty or to kill X, edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf and remove the ServerFlags section. Backup this file to restore it at boot time:

sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /cdrom/etc
