I am trying to get the X Windows to work, I must be doing something wrong. I read the FAQ and manual but no go. I have Cygwin/X installed on a Windows 7 Desktop.
I type Startxwin or xwin and just get a xterm to the server ? I got some directions I am gonna try tonight.
I would like to take this chance to say thanks for the software .... I LOVE CYGWIN, USE IT EVERY DAY.
I have shell scripting that runs my EDI programs ... it was on the korn shell on MKS toolkit .... the one person i worked with wanted to save money and (unknow to me) never paid the Software Maint. fees to mks .... and when I went to renew ... they wanted a huge sum of money and gave me a destuction date for the software .... i explained that I needed to run 2 environments and could not destroy the software.
They would not deal with me, help me or for that matter, return my calls or email.
It took a little work ... but I ported my scripting to bash under Cygwin.
Next time the arrogant sales rep called me asking what I wanted to do ... I said I moved to the free, Open Source Cygwin and simply have no further need of your overpriced software.
OPEN SOURCE RULES !!!
