Nested X server

Nested X server is used to create X display inside current display.
I found Xephyr to be very useful. Basically, Xephyr creates a new X display that’s nested inside your current display.

# apt-get install xserver-xephyr

+Start the Xephyr

$ Xephyr -screen 1024x768 -br :1
+Run applications inside it 

$ DISPLAY=:1 awesome
