The development work is being done in conjunction with the freedesktop.org community. The X.Org Foundation is the educational non-profit corporation whose Board serves this effort, and whose Members lead this work. The current X.Org release is X11R7.7.

Using Cygwin/X. Described below are several methods of starting up the Cygwin/X X Server with a startup utility that optionally starts initial clients (for example, a terminal or a window manager) and performs X server configuration (for example, loading a keyboard modifier map).

Using Cygwin/X

Starting Cygwin/X in multiwindow mode (startxwin) Use the custom XWin startup utility startxwin startxwin is included in the xinit package (installed by following the instructions in the Section called Installing Cygwin/X in Chapter 2), which starts the X server in multiwindow mode along with a single X terminal. Run startxwin by: using the "XWin Server" shortcut under "Cygwin-X" on the Start Menu Starting /usr/bin/startxwin in a Cygwin shell: Manpage of XWIN.

Manpage of XWIN

The X Server for the X Window System on the Cygwin/X environment running on Microsoft Windows, XWin can be optionally configured with the XWinrc file. A system-wide configuration file should be placed in /etc/X11/system.XWinrc, a per-user file should be put at $HOME/.XWinrc. Manpage of STARTXWIN. Section: User Commands (1)Updated: xinit 1.3.2IndexReturn to Main Contents startxwin - Cygwin XWin server initializer startxwin [ [ client ] client_options ... ] [ -- [ display ] server_options ... ] The startxwin program is used to start the Cygwin XWin server in multi-window mode and a first client program.

Manpage of STARTXWIN

If no specific client program is given on the command line, startxwin will look for a file in the user's home directory called .startxwinrc to run as a shell script to start up client programs. If no such file exists, startxwin will use the following as a default: FAQs for Cygwin. Xdefaults. .screenrc examples. When screen is invoked, it executes initialization commands that are contained in two files "/etc/screenrc" and ".screenrc" in the user's home directory.

.screenrc examples

These defaults can be overridden in the following ways: For the global screenrc file screen searches for the environment variable $SYSSCREENRC (this override feature may be disabled at compile-time). The user specific screenrc file is searched for in $SCREENRC, then $HOME/.screenrc. Cygwin/X. X Frequently Asked Questions. 6.1.
