Re: problem starting xterm (resolved)

2004-08-03 Thread Yadin Y. Goldschmidt
I found out that the problem was that I installed the Nortel remote sslvpn
application manager that makes some changes to the system. Once I undid
those changes all  X programs started to work fine again. It is interesting
what kind of changes to the system can interfere with cygwin programs in
this way.





problem starting xterm

2004-08-02 Thread Yadin Y. Goldschmidt
I use the startxwin.bat to start x on an xp machine at work. At home it
works fine. At work the X icon appears in the
tray but the xterm does not open. If I type xterm in a cygwin window it
starts. but if I type the full command
as in xstartxwin.bat i.e.
xterm -sl 1000 -sb -rightbar -ms red -fg yellow -bg black -e
/usr/local/bin/bash -l 
I get an error:
$ Xlib: unexpected async reply (sequence 0x5e)!
X Error of failed request:  BadLength (poly request too large or internal
Xlib l
ength error)
  Major opcode of failed request:  41 (X_WarpPointer)
  Serial number of failed request:  95
  Current serial number in output stream:  94
This happens even if I omit the last part namely -e /usr/bin/bash -l
Any clue to what is wrong?
I attach the output of cygcheck -rs.
Thank you for any help.

 Could someone help me find a way to fix this without having

 it into the release yet?

Re: Some undesirable behaviour in Test77

2003-01-31 Thread Yadin Y Goldschmidt
Raymond,
Are you sure you are not running twm or any other window manager? you have
to REM twm in the batch file.
Raymond Kwong [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote in message

 Harold:

 The latest X server, Test 77, does not crash with -multiwindow -clipboard
for
 me also. Thanks for the good work.

 There is, however, some undesirable behaviour with Test 77, which is not
 present in XWin-4.2.0-20.

 1. I use the virtual desktop virtuawin. When I switch from another desktop
 to the one containing the xterms, I get incessant switching between xterms
 if there is more than one. This behaviour was reported by others, I think.

 2. I have 2 xterms, one partially covering the other. If I click the one
 underneath to bring it to the front, the overlap area comes up only in
 outline. I can still see the material in the other xterm underneath. It is
as
 if the xterm brought up is transparent on the overlap area!

 These 2 problems are not observed with XWin-4.2.0-20.

 Let me know what details you need to know in connection with these two
 problems. Because of them, I normally still use XWin-4.2.0-20,
 manually starting xwinclip if necessary. Although I am not 100% sure, but
I
 think every X server later than XWin-4.2.0-20 that I tried exhibits
similar
 problems.

Re: using WindowMaker instead of twm

Be sure that your $HOME variable is not set to the default windows location,

 I just downloaded and installed Cygwin. The default
 window  manager : twm doesn't provide many
 functionality and it's hard to use. I don't even know
 how to change the windows size. (i'm a newbie). I
 found that there is wmaker.exe in X11R6/bin. So I
 replaced that with twm  in the startxwin.sh file.
 But when I tried to run it. WindowMaker couldn't
 start, crashed all the time.

 So how do I use windowmaker instead of twm? (or does
 cygwin come with any other better window manager?)

Re: New multiwindow mode is great

2003-01-15 Thread Yadin Y Goldschmidt
I don't have any root window up, it is minimized. You are right that it is
not needed at all actually. Invoke
XWin with a startxwin.bat batch file with
start XWin -multiwindow
run rxvt -sl 1000 -e bash -l
this will insure your bash prompt wil appear if it is in .bashrc. You can
also add stuff like
-fg black -bg white -fm 9x16bold --scrollstyle next -sr to the rxvt line to
make it look nicer.

In multiwindow mode we don't need the Xwin root window.

Hopefully as time progresses you will work out all these nitty
Gritty details.

The root window has to be gotten rid of or hidden like in
Setting it as a hidden microsoft window BG.

Also of course my bash ansi terminal sequence which was in

RE: Server Test 70

Hi,
I now realized that I can avoid the problem I reported before if I invoke
rxvt (or xterm) from startxwin.bat without the run command. Usually i had a
line
run rxvt ...
in order to avoid an open command window. If I delete the run then I have
to minimize the command window by hand but all subsequent windows invoked
from the original xterm work fine. How can this be explaine?

 In multiwindow mode, don't start window manager.
 We must write code that behave as window manager, but I have not
 done yet.

 By the way, I made X Server move/resize window, instead of window
 manager. But changing z-order of window is still in X client side,
 that will cause problems.

Yes, same file size. (although my time is 14:34 not 19:34). Maybe your
problem is that you are running win 98se whereas all users that reported
success use xp/win2k.

 By the way, is this the same file size as your xwin?

 $ ls -l `which xwin`
 -rwxr-xr-x1 U752359  unknown   3381760 Jan 12 19:34
/usr/X11R6/bin/xwin


 Hi Kensuke,
 
 I commented out the window manager startup anyway. Besides, if I just run
 XWin -multiwindow from the command line, it shouldn't seg fault should
it?
 
 JS.
 
 
 In multiwindow mode, don't start window manager.
 We must write code that behave as window manager, but I have not
 done yet.
 
 By the way, I made X Server move/resize window, instead of window
 manager. But changing z-order of window is still in X client side,
 that will cause problems.

Yes, I see exactly the same behavior. The fact that after opening another
window the problem is corrected means that it probably should not be
difficult to correct.

 I get the same problem with non-aligned menus with xfig also,
 so it is not LyX specific.

 But check this out:

 1. open LyX or xfig (or I guess any gui app)
 2. move the window
 3. try to open a dropdown menu - the menus are detached and not aligned
  (they show up at the old window position)
 4. open another window (either an action from the menu opens it, or just
create
  an xterm or something)
 5. try to open a menu again - the menus appear where they should be

 Anyone else seeing this?

Hi Harold,
I would like to report success with windows xp. Multiwindow mode works!
However there is still one problem:
from startxwin.bat I invoke rxvt and this starts fine. If from this rxvt I
start xterm or another rxvt then first time it starts it kind of vibrate non
stop and I have to kill it by clicking on the x on the top right corner. If
I now start again rxvt it starts fine and so are all other windows like
xclock, xcircuit, etc. I don't understand why the first time I invoke
another window it enters into a trans and later instances are fine.

 Links:

 I just posted Test 70 to the server development page:
 http://xfree86.cygwin.com/devel/shadow/

 You can install the Test 70 package via setup.exe by selecting the
 'test' package (and be sure to check the 'Bin' box):
XFree86-xserv-4.2.0-18

 Server Test Series binary and source code releases are now
 available via the sources.redhat.com ftp mirror network
 (http://cygwin.com/mirrors.html) in the
 pub/cygwin/xfree/devel/shadow/ directory.  You may wish to note the
 desired filename in the links below, then download from your
 closest mirror (http://cygwin.com/mirrors.html).

 Server binary, direct link:

 Server source, direct link:

 Changes:

 1) EXPERIMENTAL: New multiwindow mode (invoked with the
 ``-multiwindow'' command-line parameter) that creates each
 top-level X window in a Microsoft Windows window.  Note that there are
 still debugging options on in this release, so do not expect
 multiwindow mode to be polished enough for everyday use.  (Kensuke
 Matsuzaki)


 Enjoy,

Re: Rootless Mode

I have Window Maker working fine with the recent built. (including rootless)
I don't know what stephen is refering to.

 Stephen,

 Kensuke Matsuzaki is working on the Windows-based window manager.

 If Window Maker is broke, then someone else is gonna have to fix it.  I
 released a few packages with the intention that others would take them
 over, but no one has.  So, if Window Maker is broke, then I will have to
 pull the package from distribution.

 Any takers?

 We need a Native Microsft-Cygwin Window Manager designed to work in
 rootless mode.
 
 Also FYI.  The Window Maker port isnt working with the most recent
 builds
 Of the cygwin libraries.
 
 








Re: Rootless Mode

BTW, you have to add to the top of startxwin.bat the line
set HOME=XXX where XXX is your home directory,
otherwise wmaker is trying to use the variable HOME from windows environment
c:\Documents and settings\... which does not work.

state of multiwindow mode

2003-01-03 Thread Yadin Y. Goldschmidt
Harold,
On 12/24 Kensuke advertised for a patch for the multiwindow mode problem.
Why is the code not distributed with setup? If it works now when is it going
to be available to a larger audience?
