Dear all,

Even if most of you are using ACE, you might also be interested in running
LKB in Mac. Lluís has decised a way to do so, see below.

  I devised an easy and fast way to run logon on Mac OSX
  (in fact there is no reason it shouldn't work on windows too)

  It is based on docker (www.docker.com) --a very light and fast
virtualization engine.
  Docker VMs are minimal and headless, but the graphical display can be
  to X11 server in the Mac host, getting the windows in the native GUI (and
saving a
  lot of resources in the VM)

  I created a linux image with all logon requirements (which are basically
emacs, plus
  some X11 and rendering libraries)  and a script that will take care of
the needed
  display redirections and volume mappings (the VM expects logon tree to be
  out in the host)

  You'll find the image, the dockerfile to re-create it (not needed, but
someone may
  want to play with it), the script to launch the VM, and a README
explaining it all
  with details at:

   Let me know if you encounter any problems
