Windows Vista Speech Recognition and Cygwin/X

2009-01-10 Thread Paul Loewenstein
The XWin server  uses primarily hardware scan codes for interpreting the 
windows WM_KEYDOWN and WM_SYSKEYDOWN  messages. Unfortunately, Vista 
speech recognition (WSR) doesn't bother to fill in the scancode field in 
the lParam entry.  Neither does SendKeys.SendWait(),  which is what 
Vocola 3, a recently released supplement to WSR, uses to send input to 
applications.


To work around these Microsoft bugs, I modified winkeybd.c as follows:

void
winTranslateKey (WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam, int *piScanCode)
{

 intiKeyFixup = g_iKeyMap[wParam * WIN_KEYMAP_COLS + 1];
 intiKeyFixupEx = g_iKeyMap[wParam * WIN_KEYMAP_COLS + 2];
 intiParamScanCode = LOBYTE (HIWORD (lParam));


to

void
winTranslateKey (WPARAM wParam, LPARAM lParam, int *piScanCode)
{

 HKLdwhkl = GetKeyboardLayout(0);

 intiKeyFixup = g_iKeyMap[wParam * WIN_KEYMAP_COLS + 1];
 intiKeyFixupEx = g_iKeyMap[wParam * WIN_KEYMAP_COLS + 2];

 intiParamScanCode = MapVirtualKeyEx (wParam, 
/*MAPVK_VK_TO_VSC*/0, dwhkl);


so that the scan code is regenerated from the keycode.

An initial test appears to work. However, it is not clear to me whether 
I have introduced some subtle bugs. For example, its correctness depends 
on extended codes having the same scan code as the non-extended 
equivalent on all keyboard layouts.


Can someone tell me if I've broken anything?  Or suggest a more robust 
fix?  It would be nice to be able to release it rather than having a 
privately distributed modification solely for Vista speech recognition.


Paul

How about writing it in the following form, that should address that concern, 
if I've understood correctly (in all cases, assuming 0 is never a valid scancode)

Well, my keyboard seems to still work with the above change.  I don't think 
there will be a problem including a patch like this, provided we can be fairly 
confident it hasn't broken normal keyboards :-)

You haven't given us anywhere near enough information to let us work
out what your problem is.

What follows is a general procedure to follow to get X working.


If you installed cygwin with DOS line endings, you would be better off
cutting your losses and uninstall cygwin.  Then start again using UNIX 
line endings.  DOS line endings just cause more trouble than they are 
worth, and there is no good reason to use them. (The option is being 
removed from setup for cygwin 1.7)


Next, read these links (even if X is now working):

Documentation: http://x.cygwin.com/docs/
FAQ:   http://x.cygwin.com/docs/faq/


Implicit in this is a pointer to the instructions for installing
Cygwin/X as recommended by the Cygwin community.  If you need help
from the Cygwin community, it's best to use the resources that are
maintained by the community.  We can't vouch for or support other
sources.

If you still have a problem, check /tmp/XWin.log for errors.

If you're still no wiser, try searching the mailing list archive:
http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin-xfree/

In particular, search the archives for references to any error 
messages you see in /tmp/XWin.log.  If XWin aborted, the error message
related to this will usually be near the end of the file, so it's best
to work backwards through the file.

You might be suffering from http://cygwin.com/acronyms/#BLODA 
If you have any of the software on the list, it's important to try
uninstalling it.  Just disabling it is unlikely to be enough to stop 
such badly written software from interfering.

Finally, if you're still stuck, you need to follow the instructions 
here:

 Problem reports:   http://cygwin.com/problems.html

In particular, *attach* the output from running cygcheck -svr.
For X related problems, you should also attach /tmp/XWin.log.

Re: Windows Vista

2008-08-25 Thread Scott Fordin
Cygwin does indeed run on 32-bit versions of Windows Vista.
Don't know about 64-bit versions. In my experience, there
are a few catches to getting Cygwin to work on Vista:

   1. Run the Cygwin setup as Administrator and in XP
  Compatibility Mode.

   2. I had better luck when I did the install in two
  stages: First, I just downloaded the packages, then
  I ran setup again and chose the install from local
  repository option.

   3. After installation, run Cygwin's rebaseall command
  from an ash (not bash) shell.

   4. When you finally run the Cygwin bash shell for real,
  be sure to use Vista's Run as Administrator option.

   5. Also make sure that your firewall is not blocking
  Xwin.exe or bash.exe.

FWIW, the Xming X server works just fine on Vista, and you
can use Xming as your X Server when running PuTTY or many if
not all of the Cygwin X-based apps.

Hope this helps,

Scott

RE: Startxwin.bat fatal error in Windows Vista

2007-05-15 Thread Phil Betts
Allen Rongone wrote on Monday, May 14, 2007 8:29 PM::

 I've seen this before under Windows XP and it was due to the fact
 that the previous user was the owner of the /tmp/.X11-unix directory
 and no one else had permissions to delete the X0 file nor were they
 able to remove this directory. I just gave Everyone Full Control to
 the /tmp directory and made it inheritable, that solved the problem.
 However, now under Vista, Everyone no longer gets propagated to the
 /tmp/X11-unix directory so when another user runs startxwin.bat it
 cannot delete the X0 file and remove the sud-directory.
 

The usual workaround for this is to make /tmp a user mount, i.e. each
user has their own /tmp.

E.g.:  mount -u -b $APPDATA\\tmp /tmp

If that doesn't work, there's either a program already using port
6000, or your firewall/antivirus is blocking access to it.

X uses port 6000 + the display number, so if another program's using 
port 6000, you can start X on say port 6002 with XWin :2.

Startxwin.bat fatal error in Windows Vista

2007-05-14 Thread Allen Rongone

Hello,

   We recently received a new Dell Precision M90 laptop with Windows 
Vista Business version 6.0 pre-installed. I downloaded and installed the 
latest version of Cygwin (1.5.24) on it. Our users use it for X window 
access to our Unix servers, anyway, whenever a user on this machine 
attempts to run the startxwin.bat file they get a window that pops up 
and says:


   A fatal error has occurred and Cygwin/X will now exit.
   Please open /tmp/XWin.log for more information.

   XWin was started with the following command-line:
   /usr/X11R6/bin/XWin -multiwindow -clipboard -silent-dup-error

   I've attached a copy of the log, (along with with the output of 
cygcheck) but it basically says that there was fatal server error 
because it couldn't establish any listening sockets - Make sure an X 
server isn't already running.


   I've seen this before under Windows XP and it was due to the fact 
that the previous user was the owner of the /tmp/.X11-unix directory and 
no one else had permissions to delete the X0 file nor were they able to 
remove this directory. I just gave Everyone Full Control to the /tmp 
directory and made it inheritable, that solved the problem. However, now 
under Vista, Everyone no longer gets propagated to the /tmp/X11-unix 
directory so when another user runs startxwin.bat it cannot delete the 
X0 file and remove the sud-directory.


   Is this a Vista problem or a XWin.exe issue? And if so does anyone 
know a workaround? I've tried configuring the permissions every which 
way and no matter what I try the permissions do not get propagated to 
the /tmp/X11-unix directory.


Thank you for your time,
Allen Rongone

Dunno. It was the only I way I could get it to work, and I was
following advice I read elsewhere. In any case, it did work when
I ran it as Administrator. Are there any downsides to doing it
this way?

No.  The error you got is unlikely to be as a result of Vista.  Try a
different mirror.

Also make sure that you run the Cygwin setup as Administrator. This
doesn't just mean that your user account has Administrator rights;
you have to right-click the Cygwin setup.exe and then choose Run
as Administrator from the pop-up menu.

FWIW, I have both Cygwin and Xming on my Vista notebook. I use Cygwin
when I need a real shell environment on my Vista machine. I use Xming
and PuTTY when I just need an X server and an ssh session on a remote
Solaris or Linux box. Both work great!

Hope this helps,

Scott

BTW this is not X-specific so you should probably ask on the main list
unless you have X related issues.

Issues with Windows Vista and X server

2007-01-23 Thread Kraft, Rainer
I'm trying to use Cygwin and especially the X server on Windows Vista. I
ran into the same problems everyone did with sh.exe stalling and so on.
Forcing it to an invalid keyboard rule (Start X with -xbkrules WinVista)
fixed this issue for me. But after I installed the cygwin.dll version
1.5.23-2 it also worked without this keyboard rule work around. 
 
But I still have two very annoying issues right now:
 
If I start X, it's using close to 100% of CPU. This started after I
applied the new cygwin.dll patch.
 
I let my PC run all the time and connect to it via RDP (Remote Desktop
Protocol) from various RDP clients (work, home). If I now have some
xterm or other X-client windows open and disconnect from my PC and
reconnect later, X and all windows will be un-responsive most of the
time. This happens for sure, if some other window popped up in front of
the X-windows in the meantime or if the screen resolution changes (when
I use a different RDP client to connect to my PC). Does anyone have any
idea how to fix this? 
 
I'm using the latest patches, cygwin.dll version 1.5.23-2 and X.org base
6.8.99.901-1. 
 
Any help would be appreciated. 
 
Very Best Regards,
 Rainer  Kraft

True, but there is something special about the RUN command that provokes
this.
I have other applications that create hidden windows, and they have no
problem on Vista Beta 2.

And from vbscript, I can launch programs with hidden windows, and they
have no problem.

I'll of course be reporting the problem to Microsoft as well, since
nothing the program does should cause a crash.

Could have sworn the Cygwin page stated We don't support beta software
Depending on the version, SFU is supposed to be on there.
It has posix support.
This learned while playing with Windows XP SP 2 with SFU.

Cygwin's RUN command and Windows Vista Beta 2

2006-06-06 Thread Chuck McDevitt
The RUN commands that comes with Cygwin-X
(\cygwin\usr\X11R6\bin\run.exe) has a problem on Windows Vista Beta 2.

When I tried running Xwin.exe and ssh.exe using that RUN command on
Vista, it caused a blue-screen crash of the OS.

Changing my scripts to use the Windows command-shell START Command
instead of the run command stopped the crash from happening, but of
course doesn't create the window hidden.

I'd guess there is some parameter being passed to CreateProcess that
didn't used to matter on XP, but now matters to Vista, and is set wrong.
