Re: [ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: xinit-1.3.4-1 (Major overhaul of X session handling)

Yes, but both of those are applications that have an icon, display a
window, etc.  I don't want any of that.  I just want X11 to *not*
launch fbpanel and to *not* quit.

I don't know if the following can help..

For years I start the X server with a link whose target is:

C:\cygwin64\bin\run.exe --quote bash -l -c "rm -rf /tmp/.X*; XWin -multiwindow -clipboard -silent-dup-error 2>/dev/null &"

and the "From" field:  C:\cygwin64\home\$USER

I created it with a script like this

MKSHORTCUT=`which mkshortcut 2> /dev/null`
RUN=`which run 2> /dev/null`
XWINEXE=`which XWin 2> /dev/null`

    echo -n "Creating XWin desktop link..."

    local xwin_exe_ico="${XWINEXE}"
    local xwin="XWin Server"
    local xwin_cmd="rm -rf /tmp/.X*;"
    xwin_cmd+=" XWin -multiwindow -clipboard"
    xwin_cmd+=" -silent-dup-error 2>/dev/null &"

        -a "--quote bash -l -c \"${xwin_cmd}\"" \
        -d "XWin Server" \
        -i "${xwin_exe_ico}" \
        -n "${xwin}" \
        -w "${HOME}" \
    echo "done."


Now, on W7, I have it on the Applications Bar, and start the x server manually. On XP, I had it in Start - Automatic Run, and the X server started with Windows..
