I've been trying, very unsuccessfully, to speed up access to GUI apps
over X11 over VPN via the local broadband (which isn't that great).
My current attempts are based around trying to persuade X to use a
shallower colour depth, figuring that will reduce network traffic (?).
I've tried altering the X11.app colour depth preferences (in
Preferences>Ouput) & restarting X11 to make them active and also via
using defaults write com.apple.x11 15 (which I presume is essentially
the same thing). Neither seems to make any difference--the apps still
open painfully slowly on the local machine regardless of what I do
and always seem to show the full colour depth AFAICT by eye
regardless of the colur depth setting.
I'd welcome any suggestions.
