Openbox is just a window manager.  If that's all you have in ~/.xinitrc,
you won't see anything because there are no windows for the WM to decorate.




I know that. Sorry for being to short with the description.
The X-Server dies when openbox starts, and it shouldn't do that, even 
without a window manager. But i see this only every tenth attempt to 
start openbox, while the original poster seems to have this every time.


And I changed /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc, no ~/.xinitrc

Interestingly, putting openbox at the end of the start script and doing

exec openbox-session /tmp/openbox.log 21

seems to stop that, but i haven't tried enough to be sure.

How do I start XWindows in full screen mode with OpenBox window manager?
It used to be that I'd just put the command for the window manager at the end 
of startxwin.bat.  Now that file's gone away.
I can't use startxwin.exe as it is multi-window only.  I can run XWin.exe, but 
the only command line or .XWinrc options I can find for that program are for 
Windows-specific functions(i.e. system tray icon).
TIA,

To achive this, create a icon that points to
C:\cygwin\bin\run.exe /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c /usr/bin/startx

Edit /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc and change

1. Do you have a .xinitrc in your home directory? (try ls -la )
If so, delete it.

2. Will it start if you manually enter startx in a cygwin shell?

Yes.



In your first mail you said you wanted to start openbox as a window

What happens if you start openbox in a bash shell without starting a

You could start an application (including xterm) which is initially
iconified.  That would move it out of sight.  This should work:

   xterm -iconic

The startxwin.sh script needs _something_ that is holding onto the
shell script, to prevent it from exiting.


I don't think I made myself clear! When I said ugly console I meant
the cmd.exe console (possibly running bash). I think you are talking
about the initial xterm. The initial xterm is not a problem. How can
I start X without running cmd.exe? 

hmm (I'm not where I can check).

However - I recall setting up some commands which use the Windows
start command with a /min option.



I'm not sure you can do this (easily) using startx, because the startx
mechanism relies on the script sticking around until the last client
exits.  The traditional (i.e. UNIX) server start-up would run a
window manager as a foreground task.  When the window manager exited,
the server shut down.

If you use startxwin.bat instead, this uses run.exe to start the server
in the background.  This leaves the script free to exit, closing the 
cmd window.  You will see the cmd window until the script exits, but 
this can be useful.  If you never want to see the cmd window, you can 
create a shortcut to the script and set it to start minimized in its 
property sheet.


I use:
E:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe -c -l 'run bash -c -l CYGWIN=server Xwin.exe :0 -query 
192.168.11.1 -from 192.168.11.2 -once  -dpi 120  '

If you don't have cygserver running you should delete CYGWIN=server, if you 
don't need larger fonts delete -dpi 120

 I am confused with the discussion in the this post:
 http://sourceware.org/ml/cygwin-xfree/2002-10/msg00071.html.  Those
 guys specifically tell to have DISPLAY defined before an ssh login.

If you read that post more carefully you will see your mistake.
You need to set DISPLAY on the computer you're X11 Server is runninng before 
you use ssh to login to your Windows Computer. That is to let ssh know which 
connection to forward. 'Inside' the ssh connection the forwarding mechanism 
will set DISPLAY. If you change it, it will be wrong. 


 Naively, I am assuming that each machine should have a DISPLAY set,
 for the simple reason that when I am physically at that machine, I
 need display in order to open x-windows.

That will not work.
If you change the role of the computers you can not fix DISPLAY in 
.bash_profile. That is not a good idea anyway, because you could have more than 
one X Server running.

 What you get if you try to connect with XDMCP (that's the protocol you

 If you don't get anything, i assume xdmcp is not enabled on the

 so, I guess  so, maybe XDMCP is not enabled.  But I am able to get into

Yes, looks like xdmcp is not enabled. If you sitting at the machine you don't 
need xdmcp, only if you want to connect via the network. 
Enable xdmcp or use ssh tunneling. I recommend the first.

That is no surprise, the DISPLAY variable doesn't set itself, you need a script

Re: Checking if the X Server is running

2007-10-02 Thread Holger Krull
As someone pointed out in another post the sequence ps |grep has a risk of 
finding grep itself in the list. The command pgrep combines both and hasn't 
that risk.
 
 Thanks Holger. Now this works perfectly. It does open
 up a Windows cmd window – which remains open until I
 finish with my app – but I can live with that. 

That can be avoided by dual nested start like:
C:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe -c -l 'run bash -c -l Xwin.exe :0 -query 192.168.11.1 
-once  '

The first bash closes after the command and so does the cmd window which 
started it. The  at the end is important to get a independend process.

No, this is not relevant. We are talking about a Windows Application here.

No surprise here. Windows applications don't use X11, so they don't look for

 Now if I connect to terminal server win_ts from a unix xterm - I am

 running something like xcalc works fine.

I'm not sure what you mean by unix xterm.
If that means connecting from a different system, then you can't get calc 
because calc can't display itself on a X11 Server.

If you mean starting calc from cygwins xterm on the same server, as your hint 
suggests, then you probably run into specific problems a terminal server has 
(finding the right session). 
Starting a windows app from cygwin xterm works here without problems.
Does calc come up in the tasklist?

Most likely this account is older and has some leftovers in its startup files.

Without knowing what is started when you login it is impossible to give further

Try a newly created account, if this has no problems, recreate the older ones.

xterm font type and size are usually set in the file .Xdefaults

add something like:

XTerm*faceName: bitstream vera sans mono
XTerm*faceSize: 10

 
 I just want to get the shell larger in general so it does not hurt my

Yes, start the server with -dpi 120
(or larger)

 Sorry to bother your guys. I am trying to set up  a sshd server on a super
 computer running on XP and set up putty on my laptop under XP too.
 I want my laptop to run under X window, but I really have a trouble. I
 searched several days on google, mailing list, FAQ, user guide
 
 1. How can I reply email on this list? I didn't see any reply button. I
 cannot start a new thread every time.

An email list can't have a reply button, because an email itself has no reply 
button. I assume you  are reading a list archive with your Webbrowser. If that 
is true, subscribe to the mailing list and answer with your favorite email 
client.

 2. If do I need to install x server (xorg-x11-base) on both server and
 laptop?

No.

 3. I can not start X server on my laptop and super computer. The following
 is xwin.log

There is no error visible in this log. What makes you sure that the X Server 
hasn't started?

 4. I can start ssh session with my super computer using my laptop with text
 mode

Did you start the ssh daemon on your super computer?


 5. Run xterm and always xterm xt error: can't open display

How did you start them? And did you set DISPLAY?

 6. Every time, I install openssh and X server, I run cygcheck -c and found
 that xorg-x11-bin incomplete. I reinstall it and fix this problem. But it
 doesn't help.

Remove everything and make sure you reinstall with Default Text File Type set 
to Unix.

How about setting this variable to a cygwin safe value before starting

No there wasn't.
And as far as i know there is no real solution for this problem, because
the screen depth (amount of colors) changes when using the remote
desktop (reduces to 16 Bit).
Maybe setting the desktop to 16 Bit and using the same resolution will
help, but i haven't tried.

 I believe that Cygwin is detecting the optimal display settings on

 multiwindow enabled.  Is there another way that I can manually set the
 display depth?

You can't set Xwins display depth larger than the Desktop it is running
on. Usually that would be 16 Bit with rdp sessions.
Did you ever check on the rdp Windows Desktop that you really get 32 Bit
in Windows? Because i get 16 Bit even if i request 24 Bit.

 I have tried modifying the .inputrc file for 8-bit mode as follows,
 but had the same problem.

That has no influence on Xwin.

A possible solution would be a ssh connection and tunneling X11 through
it. Cygwin provides a ssh daemon for windows.

 Drag and Drog is governed by the window manager, so how did you start
 Xwin and your java application?
 
 I use the standard startxwin.bat to start Cygwin X Server.  I believe it
 is %RUN% XWin -multiwindow -clipboard -silent-dup-error by default.
 Then I telnet into my Linux box.  From there, I launch my java app which
 is Swing-based.  The java app is then open in a different window.  The
 app is working perfect in all aspects except for Drag-N-Drop.

Drag and Drop is working here with that setup. Which application do you
use? (i tested with azureus and java 1.6, don't know if it uses swing)

Maybe try -rootless instead of -multiwindow for a test.

Re: Xaccess config when VPN changes local IP

Terrence Branscombe schrieb:

 When I establish a VPN connection to my work network from my Windows
 system at home the Windows host IP changes from 192.168.0.X to an IP

Check if
!DisplayManager.requestPort:0
is in your xdm-config. And check if xdm is really listening on Port udp/177.

 %RUN% XWin -ac -indirect %REMOTE_HOST% -from %LOCAL_HOST%
 where REMOTE_HOST is defined as my Debian hostname, and LOCAL_HOST is
 defined as my Windows hostname.

Are you sure you need indirect XDMCP and not just standard? (try -query
instead of -indirect).
Try the numeric ip addresses for REMOTE_HOST and LOCAL_HOST, LOCAL_HOST
needs to be the address send by the VPN gateway.

 I've tried redefining LOCAL_HOST to the
 IP address configured by the VPN gateway, and tried changing DISPLAY
 from localhost to the VPN-configured IP address as well.  The end result
 in all cases is the blank gray screen.

There is no need to set DISPLAY if you use XDMCP.

Create a new user on the linux box (to make sure it is nothing in the

I don't understand your description.
There is no such thing as an xterm server.
Drag and Drog is governed by the window manager, so how did you start

If you are using -mnocygwin you are not compiling a cygwin application

Are you sure that this isn't just your linux server that doesn't like
you? Is your X-Server working with local connections?


 I copied the cygwin folder and the cygwin shortcut on a Windows XP
 system that it is working perfectly fine on.  I pasted that folder and
 shortcut onto another XP system.  My network administrator said he has
 done this before and cygwin has worked fine.

Well then, ask him.


 Can we copy the program
 over to another computer this way without running the install/setup? 

Usually not. Registry entry's are missing this way (that means mount
points at least).

 the following message:

 Anybody could help me?

This is most likely only a warning, and not an error. Xwin does the same
about /tmp/.X11-unix for example.
If you want to get rid of it you need a user root with uid 0 in
/etc/passwd and then change the owner of .font-unix to root.

But i doubt that this is the reason for xfs not starting. Btw only few
applications require a font server these days.

 something else??

start Xwin with :2
xwin will use port 6000 for the first server, 6001 for the second and so
on. Starting it with :2 will put it on the third port 6002.

Re: Larger fonts + ClearType

 I have a high resolution on my laptop and I would like to have larger

Start Xwin with -dpi 120 (if that is to large try 100)

 
 Moreover, it seems like the ClearType setting works for XWin fonts, too.
 At least for
 Times. It looks fine, but is it intended?

I can only guess here. But i assume that fonts are drawn with the render
 extension which uses windows functions, and that could lead to the use
of clear type.

Well, you are starting kicker in cygwin, so no suprise here.
If you want to start kicker on your linux computer you will have to use
ssh or rsh. Remember to set DISPLAY if you are not using ssh tunnel.

Re: XWin 100% CPU usage for Java applications on Vista

2007-03-24 Thread Holger Krull
   3. On a linux machine, run this command:
 
   export DISPLAY=__VISTA_HOST__:0.0
 
   4. Start a Java GUI application, on the linux machine. For example,
 use the jconsole command, from the Java JDK.
 
   5. After the GUI is displayed on the Vista machine, lock the
 computer, then unlock it. The GUI window will become white and
 unresponsive, and one CPU core will be used up to 100%.

I had similar problems and found that starting the X Server with
 -engine 1 will help. Give it a try.
