  • Dear colinux community,
    I recently finished my first colinux installation yay. I use cygwin multiwindow as xserver on win and I am quite disappointed by its look. The windows seem to come from 20 years in the past with grey boxes, though I have seen screenshots where unix programs really look like their windows versions, like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ubuntu_on_Windows_-_Firefox_vs_Firefox.png
    Can you tell me what changes I have to make? I use Win XP Pro with the debian image.
    Greetings

     
    • Maybe the reason is the window manager you are using. I am using XMING and I am content with the look and feel: X-Windows are all normal Windows windows.
