cygwin x windows support?

  • Create an Issue
  • Cancel

Hello Devolutions,

Is it possible to use cygwin x window as well. Xming is good but cygwin x is also good. When you install cygwin you can install the x windows system and can start it with a batch file.

The batch file is usually in c:\cygwin\bin\startxdmcp.bat. Make a copy on your desktop and then edit the line to the IP of the PC running the xdmcp.

IF "%REMOTE_HOST%" == "" SET REMOTE_HOST=enter_ip_of_xdmcp_server

Any chance of this being an add on as well?

Thank you,

Hi
For sure this could be a great add-on. I already have Cygwin in my possible list of add-on but not as a replacement for the X-Window. We will try to do it soon but if you know someone that is interested in creating this add-on, I will gladly pay for that.

Hello David,

How hard is it to make an add-on? You have a wiki or some web pages about it?

Hi Franco,
It's not really hard to make an add-on and if you need help we can help you. First thing you should do is take a look at the tutorial:

http://remotedesktopmanager.com/remotedesktopmanager/Home.aspx/AddOnSDK#

Download the notepad add-on and take a look at the code. You will see that it's very easy to launch an executable. I will help you if you have any problem. You can also download Visual Studio 2008 Express to compile your add-on.
