various X-based apps (konsole, mplayer, mencoder) fail to start
Tue Jun 24 21:51:00 GMT 2008
hopefully one of you can help me:
i have a win xp home sp2 laptop here; i have cygwin up and running
(mirrors are sunsite.dk and xmission.com). the only thing that does not
work are any of the kde apps (e.g. konsole) or mplayer/mencoder, which
are AFAIR compiled with X support (at least mplayer must be). even if
ran in a (working!) xterm, they simply exit without displaying an error
or other info or displaying some GUI.
this also prevents the kde desktop from being started, as kstartupconfig
suffers from the same problem.
any idea what might go wrong here?
