xwinclip on Win95 no longer works (switched from Gnome to KDE on linux)
Tue Jun 8 13:27:00 GMT 2004
This is helpful to hear. I was a little concerned because the Cygwin home
page refers to Win98SE and above.
What I don't quite understand is why (my "old" November 2003) xwinclip was
working perfectly fine with Gnome but won't work at all with KDE.
I will attempt upgrading (actually installing anew).
