Subject: Cygwin/X : display error with latest x-related packages
Date: Thu, 12 Mar 2015 14:56:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <1930538333.15658.1426164241046.JavaMail.www@wwinf1m22> (raw)

Dear Cygwin/X users and developpers,

I recently experienced a problem with a program using the X window system.
With the latest Cygwin release, the latter is not able to open the display, whereas with previous versions of cygwin (+ the x-window machinery, i.e the Cygwin/X installation as described in the installation notes, with xlaunch, xinit, xorg-server etc.) (prior to mid-February 2015), it was working correctly.
Other programs using the X window system, such as ghostview for example, is working correctly on my installation.
I have seen on the Cygwin/X news that X server and X.Org X11 packages have been upgraded to newer versions, and I was wondering if there was a known loss of backward compatibility with these fresh versions (even a simple change, like in the DISPLAY variable or something like that) ?

Best regards,
