Re: CYGWIN_ROOT Question
Thanks for the reply
I have come to believe this is an X problem after all and will add a post
It seems that during my cygwin installation everything was installed in D:
(D:\usr, D:\bin etc), except for usr\X11R6\lib\X11\fonts. which was instead
installed as C:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\lib\X11\fonts . When I restore the latter
XWin will run however it refuses to do so if
C:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\lib\X11\fonts does not exist. I did add the font
directory to D:\usr\X11R6\lib\X11\, but it did not make a difference.
Possible bug in cygwin setup.exe?
