 * using a terminal and a shell I often have to enter Enter or Tab 
 twice to get the desired effect. How come?

Which effect do you desire? (Filename completion, command completion,
...)? Which
shell? How did you configure it? (i.e. if you are talking about readline
functionality,
what's the content of your .inputrc, and did you make sure it gets
read?).

Windows fonts usage?

2007-08-27 Thread Ronald Fischer
Is there a way to use/convert the fonts which come with Windows, for
usage
with Cygwin/X, when running XWin.exe in Multiwindow mode?

 Other than not closing the lid, does anyone have any workarounds to try or
 further handle on this issue?

Unfortunately I didn't find a resolution for the Cygwin problem on Vista, but a
solution that works perfectly is to use the Xming X server rather than the
Cygwin server. 

Hope this helps others hitting the same issues.

Known issue.  Use the option off the context menu of the X icon in your
status bar to show the cursor again.  That's the current work-around.

Okay, thanks, worked. Do you have some background information why this 
happens and when? Because I have the feeling that sometime it happens 
after a few minutes and sometimes after hours or not at all.

 Which effect do you desire? (Filename completion, command completion,
 ...)?

The desired effect for the Enter key would be to normal enter function 
of a shell. Tab should do file and command completion.

 Which shell?

zsh

 How did you configure it? (i.e. if you are talking about readline
 functionality, what's the content of your .inputrc, and did you make sure it 
 gets
 read?).

I don't think the content of $INPUTRC is relevant when talking about 
Enter and Tab having no effect on the first try. Anyway, I have no 
problem with that in rxvt or cmd - only in X.

   I will be glad if UTF-8 support is turned back on again,

I would like to echo neomjp's request.  The Unicode support in xterm
is enough to do much, like viewing multi-byte documents in Vim.  I use
this script to start a UTF-8 XTerm:

#!/bin/sh
LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 xterm -u8 -fn *-medium-*--18-*-iso10646-1 -fb
*-bold-*--18-*-iso10646-1 -fw *-medium-*-ja-18-*-iso10646-1 -e
bash $@ 

And Latin1 characters, Japanese characters, and most Chinese
characters can be displayed correctly.

Best regards,

Yongwei

Double quotes around the $@ variable will ensure that positional variables

I am sorry to send the wrong code.  The `-e bash' was added when I
tried to figure out what went wrong (perhaps the -u8 not working
issue, but I do not remember exactly).  It does not work as intended.
The purpose of $@ here is to pass special xterm flags like `-cjk'.
The script should be:

#!/bin/sh
LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8 xterm -u8 -fn *-medium-*--18-*-iso10646-1 -fb
*-bold-*--18-*-iso10646-1 -fw *-medium-*-ja-18-*-iso10646-1 $@ 

Thanks for giving hints, anyway.

No, I don't.  You can check the email archives for more, though I don't
recall if there was more in the way of specific details or not.  It is
definitely a random occurrence.  I don't see it very much myself but I
do use the Xming server more regularly than the Cygwin version.

 This suggest that different dot-files are sourced in the two cases.
 When I run bash (in my case) either from cmd or started by XWin, I
 also have differences in which dot-files are sourced, so this is the
 first place you might want to look.

There is just one configuration file in this case: ~/.zshrc. And I 
don't have any setting that would have the do nothing on the first 
enter; wait for the second enter effect.

Running Cygwin on Vista

2007-08-27 Thread T . Shoeib

Hello,
 
 I have been trying to run Cygwin on my new laptop 
running Vista Home
Premium and I am having a really tough time. Initially, 
the command


startx was not recognised so I downloaded all the x11 
packages. I


then ran cygwin again without rebooting, the startx 
command was then


recognised and an xterm window was opened. I tried to 
connect to


Columbus but the ssh command was not recognised so I 
decided to


reboot and start again and now after the reboot I run 
cygwin and type


startx it does accept the command and starts however 
gives the


message linked dll data write copy failed and it does not 
open the


xterm.





I also started reading about the problem on the net where 
some claim that cygwin works for them on vista and other 
see link http://www.trnicely.net/misc/vista.html claim 
that it is a problem with that required a microsoft fix.




I need your help.



Tamer
