Hi ralf :)
I tried to install kde-cygwin from setup kde-cygwin link...
I left the default setup for both cygwin and kde... And when i tried to run
it doesn't work ?
it seems xfree and x haven't been installed ?
is it possible to get it installed automatically ?
I tried few times and can't get it working...
Very strange because before.. (one year ago) it did install without problems
Is it a bad installation process of mine ?
Kind regards,
