Hi all

Can I change the domain socket name from /tmp/.X11-unix/X0 to something else?I search the start up script, and found that I can change the directory /tmp/.X11-unix to something else. Can I also change the name X0?or pointing this socket file reference to some other pre-create socket file?

Any help would be appreciated.

Best Regards
