Problem with xman-1.1.3-1

Hi,

When I use xman 1.1.3-1 to view man pages it renders the pages as
postscript. It seems to omit the step to process the PS.

So I see stuff like this
%!PS-Adobe-3.0
%%Creator: groff version 1.22.2
...
...

Using man to display the page works fine.

When I use xman 1.1.2-1 the man page is also rendered correctly.

Steps to repro
1)Install cygwin using setup-x86.exe (version 2.831).

I choose all of Base (Default)

and from X11
xinit
xman
xorg-server
xorg-server-common
xterm
X-start-menu-icons

2) Start->Cygwin-X-≥XWin Server

Advice on getting window manager, file manager and simple text editor to work

I'm trying to recreate the look and feel of a standard Unix X Windows system on my PC using Cygwin (something
resembling the old CDE, or Redhat in functionality).  

I've got Cygwin with X11 and openbox running, but a few problems stubbornly unresolved:

Openbox doesn't have a dock so if you minimize a window it's just gone.  

There are suggestions to solve this problem with a toolbar application called tint2, however the latter
doesn't build successfully on my Cygwin installation (Errors in cmake about compilers not working when
in fact they are working just fine).  

Another major item is some kind of file manager to run inside the Openbox root window.  Although I've
installed the KDE and Gnome items available through cygwin setup-x86_64.exe, none of the file managers
such as Nautilus, Thunar, KDE file manager etc. appear to be part of those installations.  I tried
downloading a version of rox (rox-2.1.2-cygwin.tar.bz2) but installation failed (gcc apparently
detects multiple incompatible declarations in part of the code).  

Finally, I'd like a simple editor.  Have installed nedit, but get 'UTF8 locale not supported' followed by
Segmentation fault when I execute it.  

Any suggestions as to how I can get closer to a simple but workable desktop/file manager/editor for
developing and Unix applications?  

Thanks,
Wharton

Xrdb 1.1.0 = 1 error in preprocessor - cygwin17 directory? Illegal control character

I updated my Cygwin today (1.7.27-2, 32bit cygwin on Windows 7 64bit).
I run the Cygwin/X Xserver 1.14.5-1
I get  errors with xrdb (1.1.0), and when I go back one version of xrdb (1.0.9), it works fine again.
And xrdb seems to think I installed Cygwin in c:\cygwin17, but my Cygwin is installed into c:\cygwin .

when I run xrdb now I get this:

% xrdb.exe -load $HOME/.Xresources
Can't open input file "/cygdrive/C/cygwin17/home/pbecker/.Xresources".
1 error in preprocessor.

% xrdb.exe -load ~/.Xresources
Can't open input file "/cygdrive/C/cygwin17/home/pbecker/.Xresources".
1 error in preprocessor.

% pwd
/home/pbecker

% echo $HOME
/home/pbecker

% echo ~
/home/pbecker

% cygpath -aw .
C:\cygwin\home\pbecker

% xrdb -load  ./.Xresources

[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: xorg-server-1.15.0-2 (TEST)

The following packages have been updated in the Cygwin distribution:

*** xorg-server-*1.15.0-2

These packages contain XWin and the other X.Org X11 servers.

This is the first release of the xserver 1.15 series.  It is currently
available as a test release, and will be made stable in approximately two
weeks if no major regressions are reported.

Please try test releases and report problems to the Cygwin/X mailing list.
Testing helps ensure good releases!

The following cygwin-specific changes have been made since 1.15.0-1:

* Fix a crash which could occur when a GL client exits without deleting it's
GL contexts
* Don't create fbConfigs for un-accelerated pixelFormats provided by the
generic renderer.  (This is a workaround for some GL clients ending up
preferring them)
