While waiting for this, I'll make a wild guess that his problem is
related to the selection changes that started with emacs-24.1.  Browse
the NEWS file (`C-h n') and search for Selection changes.

Thank you for trying to help.

I found that when I googled, but I did not find it helpful at
first. I think the following is incomplete.

*** `x-select-enable-primary' now defaults to nil.
Thus, commands that kill text or copy it to the kill-ring (such as
M-w, C-w, and C-k) also use the clipboard---not the primary selection.

I think that x-select-enable-primary also affects C-y.

I tried to paste with the scroll wheel, but apparently that generated
mouse-4, not mouse-2. But I really want to paste with the right mouse
button.

In .emacs:
   (global-set-key [mouse-3] 'mouse-yank-primary)

In .Xdefaults:

XTerm*VT100.Translations: #override \
  KeyBackSpace: string(0x7f) \n\
  ~Shift ~Ctrl ~Meta Btn1Up: select-end(PRIMARY, CLIPBOARD)  \n\
  ~Shift ~Ctrl ~Meta Btn3Down:ignore()  \n\
  ~Shift ~Ctrl ~Meta Btn3Up:  insert-selection(PRIMARY, CLIPBOARD)


(When I first tried to post this, I got the backspace invokes help
problem. I put in the fix for that also)

startxwin.bat - Can't open display, but taskbar icon appears

and I can start xterm from that! 

I changed the timeoutfor checkX to 60, and then it works. What can make 
XWin.exe take so long to start up? 

Could it be reverse name lookup? If so, how can I solve that without
providing working reverse lookup?

This was only true with the old version of emacs which depended on
libncurses7, as the latter was not rebase-able.  This is no longer an
issue with the latest version of emacs; just rebase and you should be
fine.

Thanks. 

I just upgraded to the version released this Friday, and I haven't seen the 
message yet. But if I do, I know what to do.

What about startxwin.bat doesn't work for you?  There shouldn't be
differences between 1.5 and 1.7 here.

Now I have gotten startxwin.bat to work, and modified it to run my bash
script. I had some strange problems on the way though. Previously, I had
used the Cygwin Bash Shell to make some changes. I use mount -c /, change
/etc/passwd to refer to right home directory /c/home/fstx, and put in
my .profile and .bash_rc files. I don't remember doing the mkpasswd/mkgroup 
thing, but I could have.

When I double-clicked startxwin.bat for the first time, it failed. I think
XWin.exe did not start dfor some reason. But I immediately tried again, and
this time I got an XTerm. However, I was in /home/fstx, not /c/home/fstx,
and I got the mkpasswd message. 

When I tried to fix things, I discovered that the mount prefix was set back
to /cygdrive. I can change it, but when I restart cygwin it goes back to
/cygdrive. I can live with that (at least for now)

But starting xterms seems to be very slow, and about 25% of time it fails
with 
  2 [main] xterm 3128 fork: child -1 - died waiting for longjmp 
before initialization, retry 0, exit code 0xC005, errno 11
xterm: Error 29, errno 11: Resource temporarily unavailable
Reason: spawn: fork() failed

I have seen this problem before, and the solution was to run rebaseall, 
which broke emacs, and then reinstall libncurses to fix emacs. 

Is this the way to do it? 
Will it still break emacs? 
Will other things break?
Will it break again when updating cygwin?

I am running Windows 7 64-bit Enterprise.

Despite the troubles I have had, I must say that I admire Cygwin for
doing a very good job at an almost impossible task, and the developers
for the heroic efforts to bring Cygwin to each new version of Windows,
despite that Microsoft apparently couldn't care less about breaking it.

Well, I did not find it, so I assumed it had been replaced with 
something better. Something that 
a) does not pop up a command window and
b) calls .xinitrc or something

I have to admit I did not look at the Cygwin site before posting the
question. I did so after, and saw the Cygwin/X section.

Cygwin-X on Windows 7 Beta Success!

2009-02-04 Thread Fredrik Staxeng
I have been running Cygwin with X on Windows 7 Beta for a few weeks. It works.
I think it works rather well considering what it does. 

I had to do the rebase/reinstall libncurses thing, but then most things work
with only a few problems.

First, the startxwin icon succeeds in bringing up the the X server, but
not the xterm. But when I run my start script from a Cygwin command prompt
it works.

Then, the first xterm appears instantly, but the second one takes a while
(half a minute?). This seems very strange to me, so perhaps I am 
imagining things.

Also, sometimes, e.g when running M-x grep in emacs, what look like 
command prompt windows flashes by quickly. They appear and then disappear.
This does not really bother me much, but it kills the show-off potential.
The audience would womder about those flashing windows and stop
paying attention to the good things.

Is there any way I could help with fixing these problems?

How to get xterm to send ESC x when I press Alt-x

2007-09-03 Thread Fredrik Staxeng

; xrdb -q | grep meta
XTerm*metaSendsEscape:  true
; xmodmap -e 'keysym Alt_L = Meta_L' -e 'keysym Alt_R = Meta_R'

no longer seems to be sufficient. Is there something more that needs
to be done? Or did this break again?

Background: I am swedish. I want the key labeled Ö on my keyboard
works exactly as the key labeled O, except of course there should
be two dots on the letter. I also want to be able to use M-v to
page up in emacs, using the Alt key as the Meta modifier. 

This of course works with Emacs under X, but I also cygwin xterm to ssh to 
a Linux box where I run emacs -nw. 

This is not possible using the default Meta behaviour, since the code for 
ö is 0366 (octal), which happens to be the same as  (v + 128). But it works
if Meta sends escape.

Run 'cygcheck emacs' and see if it reports any missing DLLs.  If so, find
this missing package(s) you need to install via 'cygcheck -p missing DLL
name'.  Rerun 'setup.exe' and install those packages.  Try again.

Thank you for your help, it wprks now.  Turns out the missing dll was
cygtiff4.dll, which is in the libtiff4 package. 

Is setup.exe supposed to handle dependencies? Should I file a bug
