I really hope that more people are trying to use their graphical apps.
Thanks again for your nice work. Shall I add my part to the ubuntuusers

It is killing the whole session, do not ask me why. However, I think it
is more like a nice feature as an obstacle.

Thanks for this link. Now Chromium is also working like charm. I can
even watch Youtube videos and the performance is quite good.

I tested Chromium with the following website: https://test.webrtc.org/
According to this site my microphone is working, while I have no camera.
Unfortunately, WebRTC is still not usable with any site like appear.in
or meet.jit.si. I can allow the page to access my microphone, however,
then I get an error page that I have to reload the page.
Maybe there is some problem if no camera is available? 
I have subscribed to the bug report

By the way the Google Voice search in Chromium is working fine.

Attached I send you some screenshots. Since chromium is now working we
could try to get Android apps running.

I just had to adjust the XVkbd-german file to my needs by changing the
config file in a way, that I have the backspace key instead of the right
Meta and Shift key. I can send you my XVkbd-german config if you are

Best regards,
