my options are the same - XWin -multiwindow -clipboard -silent-dup-error 

Are you saying that you get a scrollbar with those options? Because I
definitely do not!


What exactly is weird? Email me directly a png of the xterm window.

click in the terminal window and hold down your enter key until your
buffer starts scrolling up -- then you can use the left and right
mouse buttons to scroll up/down the xterm buffer by clicking
above/below the scrollbar slider ( i.e. you will NOT be able to scroll
until you've ENTERED enough to cause buffering to occur

BTW, how would one set up a separate email folder or something that
would catch all of my cygwin-xfree mail in my g-mail account?

That's because -scrollbar is not a valid command line parameter tor
xterm.

%RUN% xterm -fn 10x20 -sb -sl 2500 -e /usr/bin/bash -l


see xterm -help

font and screen size

2007-09-05 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!

I just want to get the shell larger in general so it does not hurt my
eyes. Maybe there is another way just to scale everything up?

Thanks.

That is weird. I do not have a .Xdefaults in my home directory. I do
have a .Xauthority-c file, which is empty. I downloaded it pretty
recently, maybe we are working with different versions.

 You can try also faceSize 10 or 12.

Re: font and screen size

2007-09-05 Thread Cole Radcliffe
OK. I think it was not working because I was just appending options to
%RUN% xterm -e /usr/bin/bash -l in the startx batch file which for
some reason does not work for any option I append (the shell just dies
quickly).

One interesting thing I found is that if I replace the %RUN% xterm -e
/usr/bin/bash -l in the startx batch file with xterm -fn 12X24 I
get the large font size however it opens onto my Windows desktop not
my cygwin hierarchy which is in a different drive. It opens into the
correct drive but with the small font with %RUN% xterm -e
/usr/bin/bash -l.

How can I get it to open with the large font size in the correct directory?

scroll bars

Thanks for the help with the font size. Now why does why does %RUN%
XWin  -silent-dup-error -scrollbars give me a terminal with no scroll
bars?

shell properties

2007-08-15 Thread Cole Radcliffe
Hello,

when I do a startx, I get a new window shell with properties different
from the one on which I typed startx. The problem is I want to change
the font size on this new window and I do not know how. Also, is it
possibly to directly open x11 without opening normal cygwin first?

Thanks.
