Subject: Problem of Starting Xterm using the System Tray Icon for Xterm for Cygwin64
Date: Wed, 19 Mar 2014 22:25:00 -0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


I just installed Cygwin 64 on my 64-bit Cygein 64 PC, and found that 
the Xterm in the system tray icon is no longer working.  

The Xwin server system tray icon has the following target

C:\cygwin64\bin\run.exe /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c /usr/bin/startxwin.exe

It works fine as the 32-bit version, click on the icon, I can start X 
server and open a small Xterm window.

However, the Xterm system tray icon with the target defined as

C:\cygwin64\bin\run.exe /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c '/usr/bin/xterm -sl 1000 -
geometry 120x40  -fn -adobe-courier-bold-r-normal-*-18-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-*  
-sb -rightbar -fg black -bg white -display'

failed to open an xterm window.

The 32 bit version of the Xterm short icon with the target defined as

C:\cygwin\bin\run.exe /usr/bin/bash.exe -l -c '/usr/bin/xterm -sl 1000 -
geometry 120x40  -fn -adobe-courier-bold-r-normal-*-18-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-*  
-sb -rightbar -fg black -bg white -display'

is still working, but only open to the 32-bit Cygwin environment.

Any idea on solving this problem?

Thanks for any suggestion.
