Version 1.30beta of x2x has been added to the Cygwin distribution as a
new package, x2x-1.30-1, and marked as a TEST release (more about that
in the "installation" section below).


Allow me to quote from the x2x-1.30 man page:

x2x  allows the keyboard and mouse on one ("from") X display to be used
to control another ("to") X display.  Since x2x uses the  XTEST  exten-
sion, the "to" X display must support XTEST.

If  x2x  is built under Cygwin (on Windows XP or Windows 2000) then the
-fromwin option may be specified to allow the "from" display to be  the
Windows  desktop.  (The  Cygwin build also supports use of an X display
for the "from" screen). Use of -fromwin sets the default  behaviour  as
if the -big -west -capslockhack options had also been given.

Unless the -nosel option is specified, x2x relays X selections from one
display to the other. (If -fromwin is specified then the X selection is
relayed to and from the Windows clipboard as text strings).


1) Visit and click on the "Install Cygwin Now" link to
   download setup.exe to your system.
2) Run setup.exe and make you way to the "Select Packages" screen.
3) Find the "XFree86" category and expand it by clicking the "+" symbol.
4) Find the "x2x" package and click (repeatedly if necessary) in the
   "New" column until "1.30-1" appears.
5) Check the box(es) in the "Bin?" and/or "Src?" columns to choose the
   binary and/or source package(s) respectively.
6) Proceed with the install by clicking the Next button.

Please send questions or comments to the Cygwin/XFree86 mailing list at: .  If you want to subscribe go to:  I would appreciate if you would use this
mailing list rather than emailing me directly.  This includes ideas and
comments about the setup utility or Cygwin/XFree86 in general.
