Window Switch is a tool which allows you to display running applications on other computers than the one you start them on. Once an application has been started via a winswitch server, it can be displayed on other machines running winswitch client, as required.
You no longer need to save and send documents to move them around, simply move the view of the application to the machine where you need to access it.

Key Features

Shadow an existing display or another session
Start sessions on remote (or local) machines using intuitive menus
Disconnect from those sessions and re-connect when you need them again
Send them to other machines with just one click
Stays out of the way using a single icon in your system tray

    Holy Cow, that is a really innovative tool. I will definitely need to try this out.

  2. sudo echo “deb http://winswitch.org/ precise main” > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winswitch.list

    WON’T work. The sudo doesn’t traverse the redirector. The only part of the command getting sudo power is ‘echo’ which achieves nothing. You need to use;

    echo “deb http://winswitch.org/ precise main” | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winswitch.list

    And it will work. I suggest you change this guide. Obviously you tried it but you were logged in as root, so sudo is mooted.
