If someone who has SHR apps working would like to test that, I'd have
a simple newbie questions about phoneui-apps (apt-get install
phoneui-apps on top of that minimal installation).

At first, starting any of the phoneui-apps resulted in it complaining
about DBus paths. I then noticed that phoneuid was not running and
started it with the included wrapper script.

Question 1. Should the phoneuid start by itself somehow, or should it
be started in the .xsession for example?

Question 2. After getting phoneuid running I now get "elementary
elm_win.c:1014 elm_win_add() Cannot create window." kind of messages
when trying to run any of the apps. Granted I'm SSH:d in and trying to
run via help of export DISPLAY=:0, but I guess it should work. So, any
idea of this kind of problem?

I try to tinker a bit more at some point, but just wondering if there
are obvious / easy answers to these that I'm missing. These may also
be the first obstacles a new Debian trier out may face after the
