I have just loaded a fresh copy of CygWin onto a new machine, and found
the 'startxdmcp.bat' batch script. After five minutes fiddling with a
local SuSE box, I got my KDE Window Manager to display absolutely
bit-perfect on my Windows box. No fuss, no messing, it just works,
perfectly. I would like to congratulate any persons involved.
The only issue I have is that when I use the local CygWin, eg,
displaying a local xterm, it messes the KDE Window Manager up. Calls
after this will fail:
Connection to "host:0" rejected.
Or something like this. If I enter 'xterm +' into the local CygWin it
fixs the problem, accept that KDE now opens windows on my Windows
desktop, and not within it's own Windows Manager.
This is not a problem, as the windows still show bit-perfect, and having
them in the Windows task-bar rather than the KDE task-bar is in some
ways better. (Although only in the first of my twin-head graphics card. :)
But I would like to control whether CygWin opens windows within the
X-Windows Manager or within MS-Windows? Can any person suggest a
mechanism to complete this?
Thanks again for a great product.
