  • You might have Xnest (older) rather than Xephyr. You can experiment with other desktops eg: startx /usr/bin/start-kde -- /usr/bin/Xephyr :2 You can start X on a remote machine (although I'd recommend vnc for anything slower than a LAN): startx /usr/bin/ssh -X gnome-session -- /usr/bin/Xephyr :2 Or just start another X session locally talking to the remote backend:

    startx -- /usr/bin/Xephyr :2

  • Where ^M is entered by ctrl-v-m (v then m). Especially useful on cygwin when checking into a version control system. If you're not using all cygwin tools (e.g. strawberry perl instead of cygwin perl) you'll find yourself dealing with this constantly. -U tells grep to process the file as binary; it needs this to work -I ignores binary files so you won't get false positives -l only prints the filename instead of the offending lines -r recursive

  • I spent a bunch of time yesterday looking for the xsel package in Cygwin- turns out you can use the /dev/clipboard device to do the same thing. Show Sample Output

    cat /dev/clipboard; $(somecommand) > /dev/clipboard
