About

Along with the SDL UNIX port, ScummVM was also ported to Linux for the X11 GUI early on. This build also runs on Compaq iPAQ handhelds running Linux.

It is not clear whether any official Linux/X11 packages other than 0.2.0 or 0.4.1 for iPAQs have ever been released. If that sounds confusing: Newer Compaq/HP iPAQ/OPIE packages are using the Familiar port with SDL as backend instead of X11 and the Linux releases were presumably always using the UNIX port.

The bitrotting Linux/X11 backend was finally removed from the code in version 0.12.0.
