Actually almost none (I just recently started using Xwinw and I'm still amazed who easy the setup is and that seemingly everything "simply works"). > I have no idea why this would occur or how to troubleshoot these scenarios. > > The console keeps returning the font error. > > Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID/, removing from > li > st! > winPointerWarpCursor - Discarding first warp: 509 353 > winProcEstablishConnection - Hello > winProcEstablishConnection - Clipboard is not enabled, returning. > cat: /home/neville/.Xauthority: No such file or directory > > waiting for X server to shut down FreeFontPath: FPE > "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/mi > sc/" refcount is 2, should be 1; fixing. > winDeinitMultiWindowWM - Noting shutdown in progress You seem to get different errors when starting startx or startxwin.sh and startxwin.bat.

Well, neither on mine and there are no mount statements in the postinstall scripts. I think some years ago there was a mounted font path but I might be mistaken. Anyway, check if all the postinstall sripts have been run, and consider reinstalling X or Cygwin or Windows...
