xorg-server-source-hwe-18.04: Xorg X server - source files

 This package provides original Debian (with Debian patches already
 applied, and autotools files updated) sources for the X.Org ('Xorg')
 X server shipped in a tarball. This enables other projects re-using
 X server codebase (e.g. VNC servers) to (re-)use officially
 Debian-supported version of the X xserver for their builds.
 Unless you are building a software product using X server sources,
 you probably want xserver-xorg and/or xserver-xorg-core instead.

xserver-xephyr-hwe-18.04: nested X server

 Xephyr is an X server that can be run inside another X server,
 much like Xnest. It is based on the kdrive X server, and as a
 result it supports newer extensions than Xnest, including render and
 More information about X.Org can be found at:
 This package is built from the X.org xserver module.

xserver-xorg-core-hwe-18.04: Xorg X server - core server

 The Xorg X server is an X server for several architectures and operating
 systems, which is derived from the XFree86 4.x series of X servers.
 The Xorg server supports most modern graphics hardware from most vendors,
 and supersedes all XFree86 X servers.
 More information about X.Org can be found at:
 This package is built from the X.org xserver module.

xserver-xorg-core-hwe-18.04-dbgsym: debug symbols for xserver-xorg-core-hwe-18.04
xserver-xorg-dev-hwe-18.04: Xorg X server - development files

 This package provides development files for the X.Org ('Xorg') X server.
 This is not quite the same as the DDK (Driver Development Kit) from the
 XFree86 4.x and X.Org 6.7, 6.8 and 6.9 series of servers; it provides
 headers and a pkg-config file for drivers using autotools to build
 Unless you are developing or building a driver, you probably want
 xserver-xorg and/or xserver-xorg-core instead.
 More information about X.Org can be found at:
 This package is built from the X.org xserver module.

xserver-xorg-legacy-hwe-18.04: setuid root Xorg server wrapper

 This package provides a wrapper for the Xorg X server, which is
 necessary for legacy drivers and non-Linux kernels.

xwayland-hwe-18.04: Xwayland X server

 This package provides an X server running on top of wayland, using wayland
 input devices for input and forwarding either the root window or individual
 top-level windows as wayland surfaces.
