First, KDE for cygwin is extremely helpful! Many thanks to its creators.
I installed KDE 3.1.4 today, upgrading from 3.1.1. I could run KDe
but not in 'multiwindow' (all windows just normal windoze windows)
start -multiwindow &
I get an error, identical to one in a post from February by Trevor
desktop 'takes up' the whole screen except the windows taskbar, and I
can't get any windoze windows to come to the foreground.
So, I wiped cygwin off my hard drive, made a fresh install, and
multiwindow worked fine. For several times.
Then, I started 'full' KDE with startx &, and now the same problem occurs
Following Ralf's suggestion to Trevor, I looked to see if the process kwin
is running after KDE is done, and it is. I kill it, and multiwindow works
fine, new kde progs start as windoze windows, etc.
But, why does kwin start? When I run KDE with startx &, is that modifying
some initialization file?
