emacs does not work, emacs-nox works

2007-08-30 Thread Fredrik Staxeng
Xwin works, xterm works, but when I try to run emacs it just silently exits.

xterm

2007-08-30 Thread Cole Radcliffe
When I try to run xterm -e /usr/bin/bash -l from the cygwin shell I
get an error that says xterm Xt error: Can't open display DISPLAY
is not set

Also, how can I get the replies to this message e-mailed to me?

you have to start the xserver first.

Make sure the X server is running first (run 'startxwin').

If you want to guarantee it, subscribe to the list.  If you want to
depend on the charity of others, make the request to be cc'd on all
replies.  This usually breaks down after more than one iteration but
it can be acceptable for some people and short threads. :-)

RE: RE: shell properties

2007-08-30 Thread Cole Radcliffe
I tried to change the font size with the option -fs after the xterm
command however xterm did not recognize that option even though it
appeared in man xterm. I am guessing that it was just not compiled
into the cygwin version of xterm. Is there any other way to accomplish
this. I could just set the -fn option which stands for font name
and use a font that has a large standard size but someone would need
to explain to me how to set that up!

Thanks.
