- Reply-to: cygwin-xfree at cygwin dot com
I've recently installed cygwin (with ALL of the x11 stuff) and am trying to open up an xterm, though to no success. I get a pile of messages from startXWin.sh (which to my novice eyes are unintelligible, there is something in there about XF86Config and I've tried reading the cygwin docs on this but the discussion is totally beyond me). Despite this when I type in xterm afterwards I get absolutely no response. I've attached the error messages below. Is there further information that you need, or do you have any advice ??
ps. if it's at all relevant I'm also using a Swiss keyboard.
