RE: X Server no longer launches urxvtc-X
More data points:
Both 'rxvt' and 'urxvt' work from my .XWinrc, except that I get the '/bin/find: failed to restore initial working directory: No such file or directory' message.
But 'urxvtc' does not.
My .XWinrc entries are:
rxvt exec "rxvt -fg green -bg black -cr dodgerblue -g 80x40"
urxvt exec "urxvt -fg white -bg darkblue -cr dodgerblue -g 80x42 -e /bin/bash -l -i"
urxvtc exec "urxvtc -fg white -bg darkblue -cr dodgerblue -g 80x42 -e /bin/bash -l -i"
however, within windows created using either rxvt or urxvt I can then execute urxvtc commands successfully.
Thus the daemon is running, here is ps output:
jgoldman 5068 1 ? Aug 20 /usr/bin/XWin
jgoldman 8156 1 con Aug 20 /usr/bin/urxvtd-X
So, there seems to be some issue with running 'urxvtc' or urxvtc's ability to contact the daemon from within the XWindows server. Is there any logging that I can enable?
