 I would assume (yea, I'm sticking my neck out) I could comment out twm and

 OpenBox.

yep -- mine is probably not the best/a little off.

Note my last line, i'm not at my cygwin box right now, but I'll bet that
if you exit the xterm that is opened on startup, that everything goes
away (i.e. xinit exits after that xterm exits )

exec xterm -geometry 80x6+0+0 -name login


I generally start my xserver  apps with my own script.  Which is why i
had the short debugging session to get startx/.xinitrc/.xserverrc
working on my box that i posted in my email.  At some point in the way
back, I left things in a bad state.

  Openbox is just a WM.  It does not provide a panel, pager, or other 
 desktop components.
 
 Maybe I'm thinking of BlackBox, since it has a toolbar.
 Thanks,
 Joe

these types of components can be used with openbox, if you want.
obconf allows you to set N number of desktops, dock location etc.
the openbox website has a lot of information regarding usage and
configuration ( i.e. i have openbox run 3 desktops and I mapped the
windows-meta-key-F1-3 to switch between them -- i also run a taskbar
(tint2) that allows me to do the same as well as have systray)

Re: How do I start WM?

2010-02-24 Thread Reid Thompson

Try this:
Copy the shortcut as mentioned earlier in the email trail.
set the Target to be:
  C:\cygwin\bin\run.exe /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c /usr/bin/startx -- 
/usr/bin/Xwin.exe
Note the double quotes around the last argument.  Without them, Xwin.exe doesn't start on my box.  startx also 
would not invoke Xwin.exe on my box unless I explicitly called it ala above

Commmand line invocation- $ startx -- /usr/bin/Xwin.exe
perhaps it's not reading the symlink properly (the default server is set as /usr/bin/X, which is symlinked to 
/usr/bin/Xwin.exe) -- nope, explicitly setting default server to /usr/bin/Xwin.exe doesn't start it either via 
a plain startx on the command line.  setting startx to echo the eval of the invocation yields


   xinit /home/rthompso/.xinitrc  -- /home/rthompso/.xserverrc :0  -auth 
'/home/rthompso/.serverauth.5912'
aha -- my .xserverrc has:
 #exec X -screen 0 1024x768x16 -engine 4 -ac -nowinkill -noreset 
-emulate3buttons 100
uncomment it and try again from command line a plain startx... xserver starts up in it's own window with my 
.xinitrc programs running.

shut it down, and try my copy of the shortcut again, starts again.

Now that we've established that mine wasn't starting due to the invalid 
.xserverrc, reset the shortcut target to
C:\cygwin\bin\run.exe /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c /usr/bin/startx
and try it - starts again

Pasted below is my .xinitrc (you said you don't have one in $HOME), you can try this one in your $HOME if you 
want.  It will open a couple of rxvt terms and and xterm.  It is configured to startup the openbox window 
manager.  You MAY prefer to copy the /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc to your $HOME/.xinitrc to use as your base.

Normally I use the Xming X Window manager if I'm not running the twm
Window Manager executed from Cygwin.



Lets make sure we're on the same page.
Xming X Window manager - from a quick glance, this is an X server, not a window manager.  It's corresponding 
executable in cygwin would be Xwin.exe, started via either startx or startxwin.exe.


twm and openbox (and openbox-session which adds some autostart and xdg interactions to an openbox manages 
session) are window managers.  window managers require an xserver to be started first, all the X applications 
'paint' themselves on the Xserver.  The window manager, allows you to 'manage' those applications (size, 
location, minimize,maximize etc ).


So running openbox or openbox-session w/o an X server already running will fail 
ala above.
Have you had a chance to read through my previous post?

  And now, sporadically, when I run startxwin.sh, sometimes it works, ie

   You're not running startxwin twice, right?  That won't work - you must 
 run the xterm command from an existing xterm, a cygwin window, or the xterm 
 icon in the start menu (which can be copied to the quicklaunch bar).
 
   Also, try running bash in an existing xterm to see if the problem is in 
 your .bashrc, i.e. not with xterm or X.
 
 
   HTH,

test this..

in startxwin.sh or startxwin.bat ( whichever one you're calling to start
X ), between the call to start Xwin and the call to start the xterm, add


sleep 5

if that gets you an xterm every time, then decrement 5 until failure,
leave the call in with failure + 1

  Greetings.
 
  I am trying to connect to a Gentoo X Server and it is connecting, but I
  don't seem to be able to open an xterm.  All I get is a full screen
  without anything.  I am running this command:
 
  XWin -query d-tuxedo
 
  Are you sure XDMCP is enabled on this server?
  Try Xwin -query gentoo.numeric.ip -from windows.nummeric.ip
 I did that and I get the same thing.  I get the Cygwin X Window with the 
 title,
 
 Cygwin/X - d-tuxedo.na.xde3.xerox.org
 
 Is there a way to add a menu on the X in the taskbar?  I see that there is a 
 Show Cursor, an About and Exit.  Can I add an XTerm to that?  Because I 
 think I am connecting, but I am not getting anything yet.
 
 thanks.

 Ok, this one was set to d-tuxedo, which I did not change.  But I just set it 
 back to localhost:0.0 and still happens.
 
  You also must have some method to communicate between both machines. I 
  always used telnet as it was all locally done. You can also take SSH if 
  you do not know who else listens between.
 I do.  I am able to connect to d-tuxedo through ssh, etc.  I just want to 
 use X with cygwin to get to it.

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

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

 Hello,
 
 I've got cygwin working well via SSH to single host, single window.

 How do I connect to a second machine at the same time.
 
 See below for details.
 
 -Duane.
 
 
 For example:
 I login as my self - with ssh  a remote session
 And I login as another person to the same machine.
  In my case, I have two accounts:
   A development account
   And A Test account.
 
 Likewise, I have this situation:
   I login to Machine1 - and it works.
   I login to Machine2 - and it works.
 
 Problem:
   I can only have 1 connection to 1 machine at a time.
   Both should have separate window/display.
 
 I have done this with commercial X11 packages, but not CygwinX.
 
 This does not seem to work, and I can't seem to find in the user docs
 any thing that reasonably describes some things.
 
 (1) Yes, I have tried using a different display, ie:
 127.0.0.1:0.0
 And 127.0.0.1:1.0
 
   That does not work when I have 2 sessions.
   The two displays work - independent of each other
 
 (2) I'm not sure what is going on with the /tmp/.X11-unix/dir
 And can't find docs for it - I suspect it is part of the problem.
  
 (3) I'm not sure what the --screen options do for the Xwin program.
 
 The script I to start the session (via SSH and public keys) is below,
 
 The difference between the two is WHO and DISPLAY.
 
 The script below - deletes the old /tmp/.X11-dir, which I know is a bad
 thing with 2 sessions. I have tried not deleting it - that does not seem to
 help.

Hi,

I am trying to use your Win32 X server.
The first step was perfect, I accepted all the default settings,
I proceeded as shown in the step-by step tutorial.

I successfully installed it, I have the bash (DOS) box.
Even I can make a limited use of it, like

I cannot go much further, however.
In page 
http://x.cygwin.com/docs/ug/configure.html#configure-cygwin-x-overview

I see
Cygwin/X settings are configured primarily through command-line
parameters passed to XWin.exe. Cygwin/X comes with a file called
startxwin.bat that launches an X Server, a terminal, and a window
manager.

The only batch file I see is
/cygwin.bat

In page
http://x.cygwin.com/docs/ug/using.html#using-starting
I see

startxwin.bat

startxwin.bat - Use a MS-DOS batch file as the startup script. An
example startxwin.bat is included in X-startup-scripts, which is
extracted according to the instructions in the Section called Installing
Cygwin/X in Chapter 2. Run /usr/X11R6/bin/startxwin.bat by
double-clicking it in Windows Explorer.
startxwin.sh

startxwin.sh - Use an sh shell script as the startup script. An example
startxwin.sh is included in X-startup-scripts, which is extracted
according to the instructions in the Section called Installing Cygwin/X
in Chapter 2. Run /usr/X11R6/bin/startxwin.sh in a Cygwin shell:


However, there is no such .bat and no such .sh
Another method here is

startx - Use the standard X Window System startx script with its
attendant ~/.xinitrc configuration file. First you need to create
~/.xinitrc from the template in /etc/X11/xinit/:

[EMAIL PROTECTED] ~
$ cp /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc ~/.xinitrc

However, in my system


[EMAIL PROTECTED] /etc
$ ls
DIR_COLORSdefaults  networks preremove  protocols  skel
alternatives  group passwd   profileservices   termcap
bash.bashrc   hosts postinstall  profile.d  setup


i.e. even I do not have /etc/X11
Also, commands like xterm, ssh do not work.

What do I wrong or where can I find the right manual?

Please cc me, because I am not (yet) a list member.
Thanks for any info in advance

i.e.

I am trying to run remote clients on an X server using telnet, but am 
encountering an error. My setup is as follows:


 - runnning X server on Cygwin_NT-5.1 on a windows XP Professional

directory C:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\bin;

 - in the bash shell that opens I enter xhost + to disable access
control;

 - I then telnet from my laptop to an HP-UX 11.0 server at IP
158.234.197.198, and login as root;

 - I run export DISPLAY=158.234.197.171:0.0 (the IP of my laptop);

 - I run an application requiring an X window: sam, which raises the
following error:

XIO:  fatal IO error 232 (Connection reset by peer) on X server

 - I get the same error if I try to run xterm or xclock;

 - As far as I know there is no port blocking between my laptop and
ther server. A trace route displays:

 - with the X server running, I am able to run local X window
applications, e.g. xterm or xclock;

Any suggestions?

If this isn't possible, what would I have to do to make it possible? 
Maybe write an X program to 'trap' the window of a Windows program

there a various ways to run the X server in cygwin.
Read the comments in and then try altering /usr/X11R6/bin/startxwin.sh 
to meet your needs.  For example

XWin -rootless -clipboard -silent-dup-error 


# Startup an xterm, using bash as the shell.

xterm -e /usr/bin/bash -l 
rxvt -e /usr/bin/bash -l

Re: X-Query (imp urgent)

2005-10-21 Thread Reid Thompson

Alec stewart wrote:


Hello All,
I have installed g++ for Windows on my System and was trying to build
a project on the same. It is like this that when I disable the GUI
portion from my project my project builds very fine and executable
works fine also but when I want to enable the GUI portion also there
are a few errors.

1)
Portion for enabling or disabling GUI is like
#define NO_GRAPHICS /* comment or uncomment this line*/ --line 1
#ifndef NO_GRAPHICS

#include X11/Xlib.h
#include X11/Xutil.h

//#include X11/Xos.h //line---2
#include X11/Xatom.h

#endif

Here if I comment line line 1 it first gives the compilation error
itself for not being able to find Xos.h
Query #1
So first thing I want to know is why  Xos.h is not available with g++
for Windows and or what is the alternative for that.


However If i comment this line 2 there comes a linker errror with a
lot of messages..but all similar to
undefined reference to XSetFont
undefined reference to XCreateWindow

basically all related to XWindow APIs..but all of them have been
declared as extern in other include files of X11 folder.
So my second query is
how can i specify my lib include directory in cygwin through windows
i.e. with which option -ldirectory or what.

when i speciifed -ldirectory d:\cygwin\lib it says that it can not
find the path 
so what is equivalent in terms of /usr/lib ..or like .what 


those interested my makefiles ..here is partial but only useful
section ..

run ./configure ( with any params you want)
run make

RE: Basic question 3 - system tray icon

 No. He is telling you how to shut down with a single click

 answering your question 4. 
 
 Also about your question 2, as someone else recommended,
 you should consider running either
 startxwin.bat or startxwin.sh.
 But doing that, whatever you wrote in ~/.xinitrc would
 no longer be effective because either of these startup
 files would not call .xinitrc .
 
 I prefer the bat file because I would need to first
 start cygwin bash in a win/xp cmd window to allow me to
 run the sh file, thereby leaving a win/xp cmd window around
 annoying you more than the X icon would.

this is not an issue -- run setup and download rxvt
configure a shortcut with rxvt exec'ing a bash shell ( passing whatever
params to rxvt and bash that you wish)
  Target:   C:\cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe -fn lucida console-13-bold -e
c:\cygwin\bin\bash
use the shortcut to open a bash shell prompt and enter
$ nohup startxwin.sh 

you should then be able to exit the rxvt shell window w/o X dying.
 
 The bat file is not unix and you might be more familiar
 with it.

 www.HETranslation.co.uk

my mouse has two buttons + a scrool wheel that can be clicked.  clicking
the scroll wheel acts the same as clicking the middle mouse button of a
three button mouse.
so, i can highlight any text with the left mouse button ( or other means
), and then click with the the scroll button to paste into any other
application.  if you don't have a three button mouse, and don't have a
scroll wheel that clicks, you can try clicking right and left mouse
buttons very quickly one after the other -- on many systems this is
configured to emulate the button 3 click.

I highly recommend downloading rxvt and configuring it as your terminal
-- it is orders of magnitude better than cmd.exe in my opinion.

 Microsoft(which you know):
 copy is by selecting then ctrl-c or menu-copy.
 paste is by ctrl-v or menu-paste.
 
 Motif  cygwin:
 Selecting text would spontaneously
 (some people might prefer the term, automatically)
 copy into clipboard.
 Paste is by middle button click.
 
 Thanks for explain this. It's embarrassing, but I wasn't aware of the
 different behaviour :-[ 
 
 
 e.g. copying from MS to Cyg:
 copy text from MS win, move cursor to cyg window and press/release
 middle button. Conversely from cyg to MS:
 select text at cyg win, move mouse to MS win and ctrl-v.
 Voila!
 
 However, if you don't have a middle mouse button, or you had mapped
 that button to do something else, you could use -emulate3buttons
 option which would require you to press both mouse buttons together
 to emulate the middle button.
 
 I do have the scroll wheel button assigned to double click,
 and I would
 like to keep that setting, which raises the question of where exactly
 I would have to specify -emulate3buttons (is it simply another command
 line option after startx?) and what you mean by both mouse
 buttons -
 do you mean left and right?

 Hi.
 
 I have what appears to be a plain US 104-key keyboard
 manufactured by/for Compaq.  Using xterm, when I press the Pg
 Up key on the number keypad, I get the character sequence
 ^[[5~ and I get ^[[6~ for Pg Dn (^[ is actually a single
 character, escape).  However, the Page Up and Page Down keys
 in that middle section between the number pad and main
 keyboard area produce different sequences, ^[Or and ^[Ou
 respectively.  On my Linux box at home, I believe xterm
 always produces ^[[5~ and ^[[6~
 
 I also use PuTTYcyg [http://gecko.gc.maricopa.edu/~medgar/puttycyg/]
 to use the Cygwin command line (since the Windows Command
 Prompt window royally sucks).  It produces ^[[5~ and ^[[6~
 for everything.
 
 (By the way, if you're at a command prompt, you can see what
 the shell is seeing by typing ^V prior to pressig the key.)
 
 Anyway, I've looked through the app-defaults for xterm, and
 haven't found anything obvious, so this must be hidden
 somewhere else.  I'm not aware of anything I might have
 changed to cause this to happen.
 It is problematic, since vim expects the sequence produced by
 the keypad buttons, rather than the ones produced by the middle keys.
 TERM is set to 'xterm' in both xterm and PuTTYcyg.

 My conclusion is there is something on my system that
 prevents Xwin.exe and / or xterm.exe from completely initialising.
 
 I've removed most of the original text of this apend, as
 while I was closing down my stuff, I spotted something!
 
 From FAQ
 
 
 
 7.6. Why does Cygwin/X freeze right after startup?
 
 Zone Alarm 5 is known to break Cygwin/X. As a result you'll
 see this line (or a similar) as last output in /tmp/XWin.log
 
 Rules = xorg Model = pc101 Layout = us Variant = (null)
 Options = (null) 
 
 Disabling Zone Alarm will not solve this problem. You can
 only uninstall Zone Alarm 5 and switch to an earlier version
 (4.5 is known to work) or use a different personal firewall.
 
 
 
 I found this, but it is NOT in the xwin.log. By chance this
 time, I had started xwin.exe in a cmd prompt and I could see
 the stdout messages. These are pretty much what's in the log,
 except for the last line!
 
 == Rules = xorg Model = pc105 Layout = gb Variant = (null)
 Options = (null) 
 
 So, I guess that's it - it's ZA, bless it. I can't not use
 it, so I guess I can't use Cygwin. Shame, I was getting quite
 fond of it.
 
 As a long shot, I'll see if I can find the ZA forum and ask / search.
 
 BTW, I discovered what is making cygwin run slowly - it is
 vsmon.exe that runs when ZoneAlarm anti-virus checking is on
 (it usually is) - as soon as any X-component starts the cpu
 consumption for vsmon rockets.
 
 Thanks again everyone

It should not take more than a few seconds to open a cygwin bash prompt.

My suggestion is this.
make sure no cygwin processes are running ( ps -ef )
return to www.cygwin.com, re-run setup for cygwin, selecting to
re-install all of the non-X applications that you have installed.  When
that has completed, re-run setup again, selecting to re-install all of
the X applications that you have installed.

go ahead and reboot. ( shouldn't be necessary, but lets do so anyway)

dbl-click on c:\cygwin\cygwin.bat

Make sure that /usr/X11R6/bin is in your PATH.
$ echo $PATH  ( if not in there, export PATH=$PATH:/usr/X11R6/bin)( you

Downloading and Installing

Install
Cygwin/X
now

Cygwin/X is installed via Cygwin's setup.exe and the installation
process is documented in the Cygwin/X User's Guide. Whether or not you
already have Cygwin installed, you can add Cygwin/X to your installation
by downloading the latest setup.exe, running setup, and selecting the
'xorg-x11-base' package from the 'X11' category.

Using Cygwin/X is documented in a step-by-step manner, with lots of
pictures and examples, in the Cygwin/X User's Guide. Please notice,
however, that Cygwin/X contains many general-purpose programs,
libraries, and functions that are part of all X distributions. It is
therefore beyond the scope of the Cygwin/X User's Guide to document all
of these X Window System components. To find documentation, for example,
for setxkbmap one should consult the generic X documentation such as the
SETXKBMAP(1) manual page. You could always, of course, do a Google
search for setxkbmap, which finds the manual page mentioned above.

ssh -x (lowercase) works just fine. I enter my password and immediately

One more place to check is your startup scripts on the remote machine.
Do they change the value of DISPLAY (they shouldn't -- it should be left

I don't see any scripts that would change the DISPLAY variable on the

that the variable is empty. Should this have a value?

If I kill the shell process on my windows machine, the xterm throws an
error: Warning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11
forwarding. and then logs me in to the server with a text command

Re: Starting Xwin - Shell Window Remains

2005-08-15 Thread Reid Thompson

As info
I start X by
   using a shortcut to open an rxvt window running bash ( see below for 
contents of shortcut  scripts ). 
   (If you do not have rxvt, use setup to get it, it is 
unbelievable to me that with billions of dollars MS cannot include a 
decent command prompt.)

   Then, in the rxvt window I type
  startxscript 

After this I can exit the rxvt window used to start X with no problems.

I have a desktop shortcut that has a target of:

C:\cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe -sr -sl 2500  -geometry 80x25 -sb -fg grey -bg 
grey15 -fn lucida console-13-bold -e c:/cygwin/bin/bash --rcfile 
/home/rthompso/.bashrc


and a start in value of:

c:\cygwin\home\rthompso

$HOME/bin is part of my path.
I have $HOME/bin/startxscript that contains:

$ cat startxscript
#!/bin/bash
/usr/X11R6/bin/startxwin.sh

My /usr/X11R6/bin/startxwin.sh contains ( slight mods from the

Tom Smith wrote:
 With all due respect, Igor, I think you missed my point.
 
 The point is this:
 
 1) I ran the Cygwin setup.exe and the Cygwin/X setup.exe
 (a distinction made by the cygwin.com web site itself) on the
 same computer.

It's the same installer, just linked to different pages with different
text.

 2) The Cygwin/X installation gave me grief as mentioned in my initial
 post. 3) The Cygwin installation gave me no grief and worked
 perfectly. 

Run the installer once selecting all the non-X stuff you want.
Setup your environment like you want it.
Run the installer again, selecting all the X stuff you want.

 
 Therefore, my conclusion was that there's something different
 between the two installation routines--is this not a rational
 conclusion? 
 
 I apologize for not including the output of cygcheck -svr.
 I no longer have Cygwin/X installed so this will have to wait
 until tomorrow.
 
 Based on what I mentioned above, is this still something I
 should take to the Cygwin list?

RE: Problems running OpenGL program on Cygwin

2005-07-06 Thread Reid Thompson
Larry Griffith wrote:
 Dear List Members,
 
 I'm a newbie to Cygwin who is trying to learn how to run
 an OpenGL program under Cygwin-X.  I used a standard program
 written by SGI (called cube.c) that I know runs correctly
 under Solaris 9, using gcc and the Mesa library, so I don't
 think the program itself is the problem.
 
 I ran xinit to get a bash shell, cd'd to the proper directory,
 and ran the
 following command:
 
 gcc cube.c -o cube -I/usr/X11R6/include -L/usr/X11R6/lib -lglut -lGLU
 -lGL -lX11 
 
 which compiles correctly (thanks to some assistance from your mailing
 list archives). 
 
 When I type
 
 ./cube
 
 I get a black rectangle with no picture (and in particular no
 cube) and no error messages.  I can click the shell window and press
 CTRL-C to get out. 
 
 I've checked the FAQ, the user guide, and the archives (which
 did give me some help), but I can't get past this point.  As
 already mentioned, I know this program works on
 Solaris/gcc/Mesa, so I'm wondering if there is a problem with
 my cygwin installation, libraries, or commands.
 
 I'm running the latest version of the Cygwin system as far as
 I can tell on Windows XP SP2.

as info - i dl'd cube.c, pasted your compile command above, called
./cube -- all worked as expected.
do you have any cygwin precompiled x binaries available ( xclock??? ),
if you call xclock, what is the result?

 Hello,
 
 I have begun to use Cygwin on Windows and I have tried every

 the techniques worked.
 
 I tried, among other things, changing XResources and
 uncommenting the lines in XTerm-color that XTerm-color told
 me to uncomment if I wanted to change colours. Does anyone
 know for sure how to change colours IN CYGWIN, because the
 general UNIX techniques don't seem to be working?

 Typical Unix-head response (Read the whole book...). There
 is nothing
 in the FAQ that deals with this problem. However, perusing
 the Cygwin/X
 installation instructions, under the section on logging on to remote
 clients, I noticed the suggested ssh command: ssh -Y -l username
 hostdomain. I checked to see what our PC guy had set me up with under
 the alias he had given me: ssh -X -l myname $1. Changing -X
 to -Y made
 all the difference and solved the problem. Returning to the
 FAQ, there
 is a question X forwarding does not work does not work with OpenSSH
 under Cygwin in which the answer I needed is embedded as an
 afterthought. Suggestion: Add to the FAQ a question specifically
 mentioning the symptoms I described.

What browser are you using -- when i clicked on the link provided, my
browser opened up with the following at the top of the browser page(i.e.
my browser opened with the page scrolled to the correct location):

5. Remote connections

5.1. X11Forwarding does not work with OpenSSH under Cygwin

A1:

OpenSSH 3.8 enables untrusted X11 forwarding by default when connecting
to an ssh server that supports untrusted X11Forwarding. Most ssh servers
for GNU/Linux are versions of OpenSSH that do support untrusted
X11Forwarding, so using OpenSSH 3.8 from Cygwin will result in a
connection that uses untrusted X11Forwarding by default. You will
quickly notice that this is the case if most of your X applications are
now killed when you try to copy and paste or if xdpyinfo returns only a
fraction of the supported extensions that it does if run locally.

It is easiest to just override untrusted X11Forwarding by passing -Y to
ssh in place of -X. The -Y does the same thing as -X, but it enables
trusted X11Forwarding for the current connection.


Which is exactly the answer you were looking for
