Hi Scott;

  Thank you so much for the lead.  I'm sick at home today, but I will put this to use tomorrow at work!

For what it's worth, I spent some time trying to get konsole and gnome-terminal to work under cygwin to my satisfaction and ultimately found a tabbed terminal emulator called Terminator ( http://software.jessies.org/terminator/) that gave me exactly what I needed.  I encourage you to see if it addresses your needs before spending too much time trying to get KDE or GNOME working under Cygwin.  Even when I got them working, they were VERY slow and unstable at best whereas Terminator is VERY fast.

Hi;

  Let me rephrase my question.

  I don't need a kde desktop or a gnome desktop on my Windoze XP machine from Cygwin.  What I need is  the KDE app called "konsole".  I need to have a tabbed multi-session terminal that I can copy & paste between the tabs and that I can rename the tabs.  konsole is the best one I've ever seen.  What do I need to do to get konsole to work from Cygwin?

Thanks,
Ken Wolcott

Hi Yaakov;

  That's what I thought, startkde.  But it fails.

I get an X message window which states:
"Could not start kstartupconfig. Check your installation."

I have already performed a startxwin.sh from the cygwin cmd window/shell.

I get the same error message after I have shutdown X Windows.

$ startkde
xsetroot:  unable to open display ' 172.24.72.75:0 .0'
Error: Can't open display: 172.24.72.75:0.0
/usr/bin/startkde: line 77: /home/kwolcott/.kde/share/config/startupconfig: No s
uch file or directory

No matter what I set the DISPLAY environment variable to, I get the the first error.  Interesting that I don't get that error when I use startxwin.sh...

$ startkde
/usr/bin/startkde: line 77: /home/kwolcott/.kde/share/config/startupconfig: No s

The same way you would on Linux: startkde or gnome-session.  Although I
will warn you that the desktops themselves tend to be VERY slow on
Cygwin, more so than individual apps.
