X11 Server for GEM

Version ??? - ???



The X.app program is an X Server (in compliance with the X verion 11, release 6.4 protocol) and gives you the possibility to run X11-Clients under the GEM environment. These may be either started local if compiled for MiNT, or remote from some un*x-box.

Here you can see two screenshots from my Falcon's desktop, the first with some X applications running local and the second with an application running remote on a BSD machine.


New: If you want to be notifyed about updates you can join the mailing list:

Enter your email address here:  
Now you have three choices:

to be notifyed about major updates only, e.g. from 0.11 to 0.12 (not so often),
to be notifyed about all updates, e.g. from 0.11.1 to 0.11.2 also (more often),
if you have already joined but want to be removed from the list

ATARI or clone with 030 or better, at least 10 MByte RAM, FreeMiNT >= 1.15.6 and NVDI >= 4.1, N.AES or XaAES or AES 4.1. You don't need a complete MiNTnet setup! (see below at 'Download').
Additional, it's highly recommended to have TosWin2 running because the server wants to tell you in the console window what it's doing at the moment...   :-)
Nearly all color depths are supported, expect of 2 planes (4 colors) and 15 bit PC format.

Being a GEM-Application the server and its files simply need to be copied to a directory of your choice. Furthermore, the directory /var/lib must exist and be writeable. To tell the clients where to contact the server, the environment variable DISPLAY has to be set to "0:0.0", best to do so in your mint.cnf.

Optionally you may install special GDOS-fonts to have the server using the complete ISO Latin-1 (page 0) fontset encoding (see below).

Much more hints and explanations can be found in the README file.  

Several at this time.
