RE: Problem with installing Cygwin/X on Windows 10 PC: no icon created




Sorry to both again. Below is what I got when running the command in the Cygwin terminal :

$ /etc/postinstall/xinit-1.3.4-14.sh
      1 [main] bash 4160 child_info_fork::abort: C:\cygwin64\bin\cygiconv-2.dll: Loaded to different address: parent(0x3FD990000) != child(0x3E3CA0000)
-bash: fork: retry: Resource temporarily unavailable

Dear Marco,

Thank you very much for the suggestion!

I have run the command line as you suggested and got the output of xinit-1.3.4-14, but nothing else happened. Is there anything else I need to do, say reboot the PC?

Many thanks,

Zuowei

the Cygwin-X entries in the Menu are created by the
script:

/etc/postinstall/xinit.sh{.done}

It belongs to the package
$ cygcheck -f /etc/postinstall/xinit.sh
xinit-1.3.4-14

You can run it again by the cygwin terminal.

Dear All,

I have been trying multiple times to install Cygwin/X on my Windows 10 PC using setup-x86_64.exe and as an administrator. Even though the installation was shown to be successful, there was NO Cygwin-X icons such as XLaunch/Xwin Server icons created either on Desktop or Start menu. I have followed the installation instructions precisely and read through many posts about installation of Cygwin/X, but couldn't find any solutions.

To give some more background: I have been installing Cygwin and Cygwin/X many times on different windows PCs and never had such a problem before. On this Windows 10 PC, the Cgywin64 Terminal was installed successfully and is running properly. But Cygwin/X does seem to be installed properly.

Any suggestions will be high appreciated.

Best regards,
