xterm utf8 cyrillic


I'm trying to set up xterm to handle output from mysql queries that contains
cyrillic.  I had success when I 1) did not specify a font in .Xdefaults
2) selected UTF-8 under VT FONTS

Under those conditions, the cyrillic characters print and all is good.

But, no matter what I do in .xDefaults, I can not enable xterm to duplicate
that behaviour by default.  I always have to manually do the above steps.

Any ideas/advice on making this the default?

Thanks, -km

well... (not having that particular configuration at hand, but able
to explain): selecting UTF-8 under the VT Fonts tells xterm to do
two things:

 	a) switch the character-encoding from ISO-8859-1 (or whatever)
 	   to UTF-8, which corresponds to the utf8 resource setting.

 	b) select the font from (unless overridden) the utf8Fonts
 	   resources.  Having a resource like "*font:fixed" would
 	   override that, due to the wildcard.

So it might be as simple as setting the utf8 resource in .Xdefaults:

 	*utf8: 2

updated 1.7 -> rxvt-x crashes

Hi,

I updated cygwin 1.7 this morning and rxvt-x shortcut does not work
any more. The window appears and disappears quickly.
Here is the content of /var/log/XWin.0.log if it can help.
Launching rxvt from a mintty terminal works fine.

Re: xterm utf8 cyrillic


The first thing I noticed was that in the xterm menus, the defaults in
.Xdefaults (after xrdb load) are checked if they have been set.  That said,
no matter what I try in .Xdefaults, the UTF-8 option under VT Fonts is never
checked.  Don't know if that indicates a problem or not.  

Nonetheless, when I set a font and then manually check the UTF-8 option  -
the Cyrillic output is garbled.  

Only when I do not set a font and allow xterm to handle all font selections
does the output display properly.  

What I would like to know is what xterm is selecting internally so I can
mimic that in my .Xdefaults.  I've looked at the utilities xwininfo, xprop,
and xlsatoms but can't really see any info that helps me figure out what is
being used.

.Xdefaults:
XTerm*jumpScroll:       on
XTerm*pointerShape:     arrow
XTerm*pointerColor:     white
XTerm*pointerBackgroundColor:     white
XTerm*cursorColor:      yellow1
XTerm*borderColor:      red
XTerm*reverseVideo:     1
XTerm*foreground:       green
XTerm*background:       black
XTerm*scrollKey:        on
XTerm*highlight:        white
XTerm*saveLines:        1000

In fact from mintty I can launch rxvt with command:
$ rxvt
but not with command that is in the windows shortcut:
$ rxvt -e /bin/bash --login

Also in the mintty terminal, I have the following issue:

make: /bin/sh: Command not found
make: execvp: /bin/sh: Permission denied

So I think it may not be a xfree issue.

This has been observed on more than one machine, running Windows Vista.
Resizing the window also makes the title text appear.

X11R7.4 and Webex problem, X apps hang

Hello,

Just wanted to mention a bug I've seen with Cygwin, X11R7.4, and Webex
(a Java based meeting and collaboration tool, www.webex.com).  Webex
has the ability to share a users desktop or individual applications
with other people logged into the meeting.

I can run X11 apps from Cygwin nicely, but if I try to run a Webex
"share application" session, it will cause the X11 apps to hang.  I've
been able to use Webex and Cygwin/X prior to X11R7.4.

Unfortunately, there is no information in the X11 logfiles.  Also,
Webex is a closed source Java program, so I have no control over it.

As a test, I tried running a few Cygwin X apps, but using Xwin32
instead of Cygwin's X server (under Windows 2000).  This didn't crash
with Webex, which indicates there is some problem between Cygwin's X
and Webex's share application feature.  Cygwin is at version 1.5.25-15
(updated a couple weeks ago), xorg-server is at 1.5.3-7, and cygcheck
doesn't show any problems.

Sorry in advance for the vague bug report, but its a difficult problem
to debug.  I've suggested our company switch from Webex to a different
product (one that also works under Linux), but they prefer to use
Webex and have asked that I submit this as a bug report.

Cheers,
Chris LeBlanc
