Well, then, apparently, the design changed several months ago.

It is an example....

try just

xterm -geometry +0+60 -ls &
xterm -geometry +0-100 &
exec  ÂÂxclock

killing xclock will shutdown the X server.
You can use any other program for that.

Thank you, I see. I cannot use xclock - we have one clock in Windows(TM) already, but I'll choose something.
Is there any way to do whatever the current version of
/etc/X11/xinit/startxwinrc does (xwin-xdg-menu, gnome-keyring-daemon, and lots of other goodies which I sometimes need) and, in addition (as opposed to "instead"), run uxterm?
