I have just made a fresh cygwin installation on windows 10 pro 32bit using setup 2.891. I have selected xorg-server, xinit, vim and gdb packages. I have modified the Xwin server configuration as described in https://x.cygwin.com/docs/faq/cygwin-x-faq.html#q-startxwinrc-exit and later I have successfully started it by using the action "cygwin-x\xwin server" under Windows programs menu. The X server is running with display :0.0 and its icon is visible in the tray bar.

On another system installed months ago I have the xdg menu application already running (it's automatically started by the xwin startup script) but I didn't need to follow the above mentioned trick described in the FAQ.

In a cygwin terminal I then try starting manually xwin-xdg-menu by using:

$ DISPLAY=:0 xwin-xdg-menu.exe

but I get a segmentation fault. With gdb I get the following backtrace:


It seems a problem with fontconfig. Any hint?

Could it be the same problem as this?


Thanks for the reference, it seems the same problem. I have tried stracing the problem, but I don't see a clear failure in the trace log. The size is quite large, it's ~ 245 kB when bzipped, if someone is interested I can post it somewhere later.

Yeah, this is the same problem, which is under investigation.

See also https://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2018-05/msg00152.html for another workaround.
