xterm line wrapping

2008-12-09 Thread Gustavo Seabra
Hi All,

I wonder if anyone else sees this. When I open an xterm, it all works
fine with the default dimensions. But if I resize the terminal, line
wrapping stops working until I return to the initial size. This was
present in the old xterm, and persists after upgrading to the new one.

Interestingly, if I have a file opened in vi when resizing, vi works
quite well and wraps the lines correctly according to the terminal
size. But when I get out of vi I get the same problems back :-(

Thanks,
Gustavo.

   From the above, it's clear the application you're trying to use wants
  to access the underlying hardware (via OpenGL).  This is not supported
  in the current Cygwin X server.  I believe there is a MinGW version
  which has some support for this though.  You may want to investigate
  that.

 There is an experimental, but (in my experience) very stable, version
 of XWin with GLX support.  This is in package xorg-x11-xwin-gl and
 installs the executable XWin_GL.exe.  You would need to alter your
 startxwin.sh to run this instead of XWin.exe.  It works, just don't
 expect great performance.

That's interesting... Last time I checked, there was no maintainer for
X in Cygwin, but I do admit that was some time ago. So, I'm very
curious to learn about this newer XWin version. If you don't mind, I'd
like to ask a couple of questions:

1. Is this package available through setup.exe? Or do we need to
recompile it for Cygwin ourselves?

2. What do you mean by don't expect great performance.? Is it a GLX
issue or something related to this particular version of XWin, as
compared to the older ones?

Thanks a lot!
Gustavo.

Re: Xterm, rxvt, mrxvt, etc....

2007-05-07 Thread Gustavo Seabra

Hi all,

Thanks a lot to Thomas Dickey, Thorsten Kampe and Charles Wilson for 
taking time to answer my question. I'm very sorry if it lead to some 
argument, that has never been my intent. All I wanted to know was 
something like a side-by-side points, such as I use *1 because it has 
this feature that *2 doesn't...  etc., really from the used point of view.


Thanks again,

Gustavo.

Xterm, rxvt, mrxvt, etc....

2007-05-05 Thread Gustavo Seabra

Hi all,

I just wonder what is the current status of terminals for X in Cygwin. I 
currently use xterm, but I've seen people using rxvt and mrxvt. Also, I 
heard that rxvt is actually currently supported in Cygwin, something 
that xterm apparently isn't.


Is anybody using rxvt, mrxvt or something else that would care to share 
opinion/information/clues here?


Thanks,

Gustavo.

huge font as default?

2006-10-30 Thread Gustavo Seabra

Hi,

I work with Cygwin/X in a laptop using 1600x1200 pixels. As a result,
the Xtern fonts appear really small, and I always change to the huge
setting (CTRL+right-click, HUGE). I tried changing the default font,
but whenever I change font size, for example, the default font comes
back. (I imagine not all fonts have all sizes...)

So, my question is just: Is there any way to open the Xterm already
with the 'huge font, by default?

Thanks,

Gustavo Seabra.

ImageMagick display problem

2006-10-04 Thread Gustavo Seabra

Hi All,

I've recently installed cygwin and cygwin/x less than a week ago. All
seems to be working fine, with one exception: If I try to use
'display' from ImageMagick:

  BASH $ display foo.jpg

the shell just hangs and I have to kill it through the Windows task
manager. Nothing else (CTRL-C, CTRL-Z, ALT-F4, etc.) works. I can see
in the task manager a 'display' process, but it never actaully
displays anything.

Could anybody here give a clue? I've already looked into the archives
and googled this problem, with no success.

Thank you,


Gustavo Seabra

I apologize. I just found the solution in the archives:
http://sourceware.org/ml/cygwin-xfree/2006-07/msg00140.html

After getting the DLLs, it works fine.

Gustavo.
