Hello, I have added a 'xorg-server-service-type' for this usage.

It can be used with 'sx' (as a normal user), or 'xinit'.

For 'xinit', you need to create a '~/.xserverrc` file with:

  X vt${tty}

To use X in PATH and the current tty for rootless X server.

Do thoes patches still needed now?
Thank you!
