I'm still struggling with the same basic issues. It seems a few people
have posted on this list on this subject, with similar questions. So
far, I haven't seen a useful reply yet, and my own experimentation has
only turned up lots of segfaults when trying to use fusion stuff :)
If there is any of the core developers who could walk us through a
simple set of steps to get two apps running at the same time on the same
framebuffer, that would help us all a lot :)
