I'm accustomed to start X via a shortcut which runs the command: C:\cygwin\bin\run.exe --quote /usr/bin/bash.exe -l \ -c "cd; /usr/bin/startxwin -- -listen"
This was working, but now doesn't, with the following shown in the log file: ==================================== Welcome to the XWin X Server Vendor: The Cygwin/X Project Release: 220.127.116.11 OS: CYGWIN_NT-6.1-WOW sothis 1.7.34(0.285/5/3) 2015-02-04 12:12 i686 OS: Windows 7 Service Pack 1 [Windows NT 6.1 build 7601] (WoW64) Package: version 1.17.1-2 built 2015-02-23 XWin was started with the following command line: /usr/bin/XWin :0 -listen -auth /home/william/.serverauth.4460 ddxProcessArgument - Initializing default screens winInitializeScreenDefaults - primary monitor w 1366 h 768 winInitializeScreenDefaults - native DPI x 96 y 96 _XSERVTransTransListen: unable to find transport: -auth Failed to enable listen for -auth transportUnrecognized option: /home/william/.serverauth.4460 use: X [:<display>] [option] -a # default pointer acceleration (factor) -ac disable access control restrictions -audit int set audit trail level ...

General remark/gripe: I realize the recent overhaul to xinit must have helped some people, but for me it has been an utter disaster. X seems to be much more fragile now and it's been impossible to work with the ease of before the changes. -- Will -- Unsubscribe info: http://cygwin.com/ml/#unsubscribe-simple Problem reports: http://cygwin.com/problems.html Documentation: http://x.cygwin.com/docs/ FAQ: http://x.cygwin.com/docs/faq/
