Re: Upgrade woes.

 I do check www.cygwin.com before doing (what I think is going to be) a
 routine upgrade. If there's nothing in the news there, I assume that
 what I'm getting is just an upgrade of existing packages that I
 already have installed. Is that such a foolish assumption?

The real problem is deeper: setup.exe is completely broken by design in 
respect to upgrading. If you choose Install from Internet it will 
silently choose to upgrade all your outdated packages without telling 
you or presenting you the automatically chosen packages. You have to 
click on View  Partial to be able to see that on the last screen. But 
who knows about that option - or who thinks of that?

You might simply want to install wget - and you end up with an update of 
and a completely broken X.

Yaakov did a hell of a job[1], but I think he knew that - and I think 
this is not exaggerated -  probably more than fifty percent of all 
existing Cygwin X installations would be more or less broken after the 
update.

[...]
 At the time the OP had just mentioned the problem, I thought that indeed
 the differences could be cygwin related: When I run my X11 rxvt (from
 startxwin.bat), different dot files in my home directory are sourced
 than when I start a shell from the command line (outside X). There is
 no mystery about this and has to do with the rules according to which
 the shells (bash, zsh,...) read their dot-files.
 
 But in the last mail, the OP said he has ONLY one dot-file, i.e. .zshrc,
 (meaning it will be read in every interactive shell, be it login shell
 or not) AND he is using zsh in both cases, AND he has no settings
 related to
 completion, AND still completion works in a different way in both cases.
 To track down this mystery, I think it is worth digging down what other
 configuration files (besides those in $HOME) might affect zsh. Since
 I am not that big an zsh expert, and since no other posting so far
 (unless
 I missed one) gave any information about zsh, I think it was a
 reasonable advice to post this issue to the zsh mailing list as well -
 don't you think so?
 
  Fine,
  they COULD have different zsh binaries sourcing different environment
  files, but it's far more likely that Cygwin/X is misbehaving than that
  Thorsten somehow managed to find a zsh binary that sometimes eats the
  enter key.  
 
 As for the enter key, you are right. In his first posting, Thorsten
 mentioned the Enter or Tab key on the first try. Since both keys 
 are used in the context of completion, I guessed it was a completion 
 issue - and  Thorsten at least did not directly contradict this.
 
 You seem to suggest that he meant that in *every* usage of enter
 and tab, the first one has been eaten? If this were the case, it
 would indeed change the picture, and maybe Thorsten could clarify
 this issue.

It's not Zsh that's eating my Enter (or Tab) key but X (or maybe the 
terminal emulator). It doesn't happen all the time but often. I 
can't find any pattern in this.

Sometimes I think that I'm just stupid and don't press that Enter key 
hard enough but that can't be the reason. Why would Konsole require 
the Enter key to be pressed harder?!

I'm using Konsole (either via X forwarding or the Konsole Cygwin exe) 
so I don't whether it happens with other terminals. I don't use Rxvt 
under X because I looks very ugly and I can't make it display my 
preferred font (Dejavu Mono).

 Known issue.  Use the option off the context menu of the X icon in your
 status bar to show the cursor again.  That's the current work-around.

Okay, thanks, worked. Do you have some background information why this 
happens and when? Because I have the feeling that sometime it happens 
after a few minutes and sometimes after hours or not at all.

 Which effect do you desire? (Filename completion, command completion,
 ...)?

The desired effect for the Enter key would be to normal enter function 
of a shell. Tab should do file and command completion.

 Which shell?

zsh

 How did you configure it? (i.e. if you are talking about readline
 functionality, what's the content of your .inputrc, and did you make sure it 
 gets
 read?).

I don't think the content of $INPUTRC is relevant when talking about 
Enter and Tab having no effect on the first try. Anyway, I have no 
problem with that in rxvt or cmd - only in X.

 This suggest that different dot-files are sourced in the two cases.
 When I run bash (in my case) either from cmd or started by XWin, I
 also have differences in which dot-files are sourced, so this is the
 first place you might want to look.

There is just one configuration file in this case: ~/.zshrc. And I 
don't have any setting that would have the do nothing on the first 
enter; wait for the second enter effect.

Hi,

I have two issues that I've been experiencing for quite a long time:

Alt-Tab and KDE

2007-08-22 Thread Thorsten Kampe
Hi,

I'm using Konsole and I've got a problem with Alt-Tab: whenever I 
cycle from Konsole to other Windows programs and get back to Konsole 
the left most Session menu has the focus (as if I had pressed Tab by 
itself) and I have to press Escape again to switch the focus to the 
command line where I can type.

This would be okay if I had pressed Tab by itself. But I pressed Alt-
Tab. So how can I tell XWin or KDE that Alt-Tab is not Alt - Tab?!

Any help or tips appreciated...


Thorsten

By the way: I don't have this under Linux and I tried to make sure 
that I have exactly the same configuration.

 when I do a startx, I get a new window shell with properties different

 possibly to directly open x11 without opening normal cygwin first?

 not at all: X upstream doesn't maintain the Cygwin X server.
 (nothing's preventing them from doing that, but it's not the same as 
 actually doing it).
 
 Again, if there were an upstream _maintainer_ for rxvt (the point of this 
 thread), they'd have done something useful with the win32 bits mentioned. 

Why would the upstream rxvt maintainer support (do something useful) 
with the Cygwin rxvt port when the X upstream maitainer doesn't?!

Well, neither on mine and there are no mount statements in the

Anyway, check if all the postinstall sripts have been run, and

  winClipboardIOErrorHandler!
 
 Well, if there is an winClipboardIOErrorHandler error (whatever that 
 is) you should try starting without -clipboard says my common 
 sense...
 
 I am not familiar with the startx options. The man page only has basic info 
 about startx. I tried
 startx -clipboard as suggested; and the console returned the following error.

XWin was started with the following command line:
X :0 -multiwindow -clipboard

Read again my posting. I said without and not with (which wouldn't 
make sense at all if there is a winClipboardIOError). startx is a 
shell script. Copy it, find the line where XWin is started and remove 
the arguments (parameters). Then start this script.

Re: Problems with Startx even after rebaseall

2007-04-30 Thread Thorsten Kampe
* Robert Neville (Mon, 30 Apr 2007 10:18:15 -0700)
 I am not sure if this is the appropriate group. In addition, searching through
 these gmane newsgroups is not straightforward since Google groups does not 
 return them.
 
 Startx fails to initialize when it worked yesterday. I ran setup and the 
 process may have not
 completed (it was late and I needed to sleep). After running setup.exe again, 
 I navigated to the
 System category and reinstalled rebase. Then I reviewed the README file; kill 
 all processes
 associated with cygwin; ran ash; and typed /bin/rebaseall -v; the utility 
 performed some actions and
 returned without errors.
 
 I fired up a cygwin window and startx would still not initialize. The console 
 gave me the following
 font error.
 
 sageQueue trapped WM_QUIT message, exiting main loop.
 winClipboardProc - XDestroyWindow succeeded.
 FreeFontPath: FPE /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/ refcount is 2, should be 
 1; fixing.
 
 The cygwin console appears fully functional. The console has returned some 
 errors when running make,
 but these issues may be completely separate. Please give me whatever insight 
 you may have on these
 scenarios. I have already spent considerable time troubleshooting these 
 issues and need better
 guidance.
 
 After rebooting the computer and typing startx, cygwin gave me the following 
 error message.

rxvt-unicode default colors

2007-04-17 Thread Thorsten Kampe
Hi,

I started using rxvt-unicode - but unfortunately it has a kind of 
yellow as the default foreground colour and a kind of ugly aubergine 
as its background colour. Urxvt reads my .Xdefaults where I set 
Rxvt*background: Black (don't know where the foreground is defined).

The standard rxvt displays black on white. Why doesn't rxvt-unicode?!

Re: using WindowMaker instead of twm

2003-01-30 Thread Thorsten Kampe
* Quan Ding (03-01-30 22:53 +0100)
 So how do I use windowmaker instead of twm?

/usr/X11R6/bin/wmaker.inst
/usr/X11R6/bin/wmchlocale de # change this to your locale
startx

 (or does cygwin come with any other better window manager?)

Windowmaker is allright.
