Questions about X11 belong in a different mailing list. cygwin-xfree AT
cygwin.com. Please use that list for replies to this thread.
I would say you also need to review <http://cygwin.com/problems.html>
for how to ask for help. Especially heed the part about attaching the
cygcheck output to your post. It sounds like you have a simple PATH or
mounts problem but you've not given nearly enough information for anyone
to be able to diagnose it, which the cygcheck output will provide.
