"XWin was started with the following command line: X :0 -multiwindow -clipboard"" Read again my posting. I said "without" and not "with" (which wouldn't make sense at all if there is a "winClipboardIOError"). "startx" is a shell script. Copy it, find the line where XWin is started and remove the arguments (parameters). Then start this script.
