Re: Eclipse running on debian with remote display to cygwin X11 starts all squashed to a point

Ok I will try this and see how it works out.  I will report back both
the results of both this version and the "-extension RANDR".

I have downloaded it and bunzip2'd it and started it from the command
line, and it started and displayed a big black window.

But I'm unsure how to start it in the same way as XLaunch starts and how
to fire up lxterminal locally...?

Probably the simplest way is to replace your existing /usr/bin/XWin.exe with it (after making a copy of the original so you can put it back afterwards)

I discovered that there is some RANDR state which doesn't always get initialized correctly, so also just running 'xrandr' might be a workaround (which was confusing me greatly when testing things :))

I built another snapshot which fixes that, which you might also like to try.
