Software News   Software News : AmigaOS4: Prerelease of X-Windows for OS4
   posted by CygnusEd on 29-May-2006 18:00:04 (11693 reads)
A prerelease of X-Windows version X11R6.3 for OS4 is now available on OS4-depot. It is a complete
unix-like environment, which is meant as a base for ports from the linux-world.

Following components are included:


* The X-server X11R6.3 (68k-version from the geekgadgets-project)
* Over 70 standard-clients like xclock, xcalc, xman ...
* A toolbar to launch programs easily
* Example-programs to demonstrate several gui-toolkits:
- Xgalaga and Xmahjong (X11)
- The card game "forty thieves" (wxWidgets)
- A demo-program from the gtk-package (GTK+)
* A program to adjust the screen background
* ...

All clients are OS4-native.
Because this is a prerelease, the structure of this package can change in the future.

For more informations please refer to: OS4-Depot

@Aldur

If there is no screen opened, please try to launch this in a shell:

XGeek -pri 0 -screen CyberGraphX@1024x768x32

Of course you need a screen-mode with 1024 x 768 x 32 for this.
If you get an error-message, please let me know. If not, I suggest to
make a SnoopDOS-log, maybe ixemul.library is not found or something like
that.

Make sure you ran the cygnix-startup before or in the user-startup. After an install you have to reboot to make the assigns/path settings permanent and the script when started from the WB can find all files.

@CygnusEd

Is this a separate version from the X11 Richard Drummond showed screenshots from some months ago?

Yes, it is my own work. I hope that there will be no conflicts with his
projects. The clients should be able to run on his server anyway.

Thanks for the release. Hopefully this will give the Mozilla team an intermediate step (Mozilla working using the X-server) as they slowly port it to a completely native app.
