I updated my Cywin installation on the 21st or 22nd of July 2017. I
run 32-bit Cygwin/X on 64-bit Win 7 Pro. If I launch the Cygwin Xwin
Server I get the icon at the very top middle of the screen and can
then go into the icons menu and right click on the Cygwin icon and
get a list of categories of applications to run and apparently launch
because if I try to launch some and wait long enough and right click
on the aforementioned icon and select quit it says there are N apps
running and do I want to close them. The problem is that anything I
launch through the icons menu doesn't display anywhere and in
particular doesn't appear in the task bar. I have read the FAQ and
UG but can't find what I'm looking for. It definitely seems to me
that the behaviour has changed since before I updated.
Can somebody please tell me what I am doing wrong? I would be very
grateful for any help. Thanks in advance.
Are you sure those apps you are trying to launch are actually
installed? You could always bring up a Cygwin terminal (not through
the X icon) and explicitly "export DISPLAY=0:0" and then try to launch
one of the apps from the command line to see any errors.
