After installing Cygxin-X, X applications won't run:
$ xman /usr/bin/xman.exe: error while loading shared libraries: ?: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory $ xcalc /usr/bin/xcalc.exe: error while loading shared libraries: ?: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory $ xlogo /usr/bin/xlogo.exe: error while loading shared libraries: cygXmu-6.dll: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
But, I still am able to open windows through ssh
Here's the log from
