Re: using chere

I had a similar problem with chere and xterm.

Chere edits your Windows registry file. It added this to my registry:

C:\cygwin\bin\run.exe C:\cygwin\bin\xterm.exe -e /bin/xhere /bin/bash.exe "%L"

This sits in the registry at HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/Directory/shell/cygwin_bash/command

I added -display to the command line:

C:\cygwin\bin\run.exe C:\cygwin\bin\xterm.exe -display -e /bin/xhere /bin/bash.exe "%L"

and it works fine for me now.

Since we are on the topic - is there a way to do something similar inside an open windows folder rather than from the folder icon? I would find that much more convenient.

I do not remenber exactly how I solved the issue,
but it is was related to advise xterm/rxvt where the bash shell is; as cygwin %PATH is loaded by bash and rxvt is loaded before.
what "chere -r" says ?

for me is:

chere version 0.7
run.exe is available at C:\cygwin\bin\run.exe
--- bash keys ---
Directory menu item (all users)
&Bash Prompt Here

Directory command (all users)
C:\cygwin\bin\run.exe C:\cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe -fg white -bg black -e /bin/xhere /bin/bash.exe "%L"
