Verify That X Is Running

Verify That X Is Running

I need some smart script that can run under linux that can:

* Test/verify that x is working.
* If it is not working it should “killall X” and then restart x “xwin”.

An idea i had was to popup some window (really small) top left corner 1px widht 1px height. Then check if window did popup sucessfully. If not then X has crashed.

I have a touchscreen driver that is acting strange and randomly crashes X. Sometimes X can run smoothly for days – and then sometimes it can crash within hours.

THe touchscreen is a model “zytronic”.

Thanks for help,

Best regards,
