FW: How to create an icon to startx with no extra CMD.EXE window
Wed Apr 9 08:52:00 GMT 2008
If you just want a shell running, you can use this:
C:\cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe -sl 5000 -fn 20 -bg black -fg white -sr -e bash --login -i
(I have that as a shortcut in my start menu)
(it is not xterm, but rxvt. It works without X.)

> C:\cygwin\bin\bash.exe /usr/bin/X11/startxwin.sh
> So this starts the xterm with scroll bars and (I assume) 6000 lines of history. Hurray! Thanks!
