A couple at least.  First, this is not really the list for X-related
questions.  Since this is more X than not, you should follow-up on the
correct list, cygwin-x at cygwin dot com.  Second, if the above was
not enough to get things to work, then you should read and follow the
problem reporting guidelines to bootstrap any further analysis that
people on the Cygwin-X list may want to do.  You can find the
guidelines here - <>
