Hi Braddock,

I wasn't able to get it working installed it in by cygwin root
directory, but I found that unpacking it straight onto the root of my d
drive (i.e. d:/usr/...etc..) made it work. The colours in pixmaps are
still screwed up though - has anybody got the colours working?.
(N.B. with the new version, you must supply a geometry otherwise you get
"Couldn't add screen" error.

Hope this helps,
