Dear Cygwin community,
Is it possible to launch Ubuntu on Windows X11 clients agianst the
Cygwin X11 server?
A first shot was not a success:
franz@FEHRINGER:~$ sudo xdpyinfo -display :0
xdpyinfo: unable to open display ":0".
but on the other hand there are already success stories for U on W
I issued xhost + on the Cygwin side and my account is an Administrator one.
Any hints about this?
Thanks and best regards
