I am new to cygwin. I just installed it and I am trying to get my X Display to
I first tried to set enviroment variables in the cywin window but saw that had
so effect when I did echo $DISPLAY. So Then I set them in the widows env
variables and now when I do echo $DISPLAY I get localhost:0, which I thought was
the proper value to set it to.
However even now when I try to open an xterm I get
"xterm XT error: Can't open display: localhost:0"
Is there something else I need to do to make this work.
Is there a package in cygwin that I need to install .
I have checked and I have the xorg-X11-xwin package installed version
188.8.131.521-1 so I assumed that an x server would come with cygwin. Do I need to
do something specally to start it .
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
