You shouldn't even need to configure X if you are exporting the display. X needs to be installed merely for the support apps & libraries.
Make sure your DISPLAY Variable is set to windowshostname:0 where 0 is the number of your display (And it should be 0 by default). Then from the command line, run the app, it should appear on your Windows Desktop. Adam On Sat, 2003-01-25 at 14:31, Brian McCann wrote: > Hi all. I've got a simple and stupid question.
