Custom XKB deadkey sequences

Hi,

I am trying to create a custom keyboard layout for XKB. I have managed
to customize the key symbols by adding a new variant to a symbols
file, and modifying the rules file to add that variant.

I now would like to customize the dead_key combinations.  For example
if I press '^' and 'e', I would like the result to be , say, 'ā'
instead of 'ê'.  I found some articles, tutorials and postings to some
lists saying that I should just modify the
"locale/<LOCALE_NAME>/Compose" file and it should work (after using
setxkbmap, or restarting the server).  This, however did not work for
me. It just keeps on using the dead_key sequences as if I hadn't
modified the Compose file.

Does anyone have any idea on what I could do to solve this problem?

Regards
Alan J. Caruana

Re: startxwin.bat fails: could not open default font 'fixed' (XP, FAQ 8.4 N/A)

I figured that wouldn't actually make a difference since it lists all the 
fonts there, but I figured I would give it a shot anyway.

Here are the steps I performed:
1. Checked that the mount point was still listed
2. Closed all cygwin windows
3. Re-ran setup.exe
4. "reinstall"ed  xorg-x11-f100, xorg-x11-fcyr, xorg-x11-fenc, 
xorg-x11-fnts, and xorg-x11-fscl
5. Opened a cygwin shell and deleted /tmp/XWin.log
5. ran C:\cygwin\usr\X11R6\bin\startxwin.bat again

still no change. Here is a copy of the "new" XWin.log

$ cat XWin.log
_XSERVTransmkdir: ERROR: euid != 0,directory /tmp/.X11-unix will not be 
created.

frame title issue

I've been using xhost for a while, but wanted to avoid modifying startwinx.bat
everytime I needed a new machine.  So I switched to xauth... and had it all
working.

However, using xauth, the title on my apps (specifically GNU/Emacs) show only
"Cygwin/X".  If I switch back to using xhost, then the title is correctly set to
the machine name from which I launched emacs.

It's not obvious to me how the authorization scheme ties into the display of
title.  In addition to the title not displaying properly, the frame sometimes
hangs for 5-10 seconds before it's usable.

I've gone back to xhost for now, but I'd like to use xauth if anyone can shed
light on what I may be missing... perhaps in the configuration.

Thanks.

X compile fails for missing (internal?) symbols2


I tried building X using the instructions at 
http://x.cygwin.com/docs/cg/prog-build-native.html, including setting up
lndir.

The build fails with the following:

rm -f libXft-1.dll.a
rm -f cygXft-1.dll
gcc -shared -Wl,--out-implib=libXft-1.dll.a 
-Wl,--enable-auto-import,--enable-ru
ntime-pseudo-reloc -Wl,--exclude-libs,ALL -o cygXft-1.dll xftcfg.o xftcolor.o 
xftcore.o xftdbg.o xftdpy.o           xftdraw.o  xftextent.o xftfont.o xftfs.o 
xftinit.o xftlist.o xftmatch.o xftmatrix.o           xftname.o xftpat.o 
xftstr.o xftxlfd.o xftfreetype.o xftglyphs.o xftrender.o xftdir.o

Creating library file: libXft-1.dll.a
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[4]: *** [cygXft-1.dll] Error 1

As best I can tell, the symbols should be defined by the x code itself, in
xc/extras/fontconfig/src/fcpat.c.  Yet, they are not available when needed. 
World.log is quite big, but I do not believe that make World attempted to build 
the symbols. The first mention of "fontconfig" in the log is in the failed 
step.

Attached are the output of cygcheck and the full build log.

Problems with rxvt-unicode 7.7-6?


I want to flag that with the version 7.7-6 there are problems in typing
some character:

  typing   'ì'  it shows  'l'
    ==     'è'     ==     'h'
    ==     'à'     ==     'g'

and similar.

Reinstalling 7.7-5 all characters are shown correctly.

Cheers,

   Angelo.

Larger fonts + ClearType

Dear Cygwin Community

I have a high resolution on my laptop and I would like to have larger 
fonts in menus etc. I tried to consult XFree86 website but no idea...

Moreover, it seems like the ClearType setting works for XWin fonts, too. 
At least for
Times. It looks fine, but is it intended?

Thank you
Gleb

Start Xwin with -dpi 120 (if that is to large try 100)

I can only guess here. But i assume that fonts are drawn with the render
 extension which uses windows functions, and that could lead to the use
of clear type.
