The current issue is running Emacs from the desktop.
I had a shortcut working for a long time that does the following:
C:\cygwin64\bin\run2.exe --display 127.0.0.1:0.0 /usr/local/bin/emacs.xml
Just '--display :0.0' is probably better, as it won't stop working when
the Xserver is run without '-listen tcp'...
The "run2" application doesn't appear to exist. I checked my notes,
and I can't tell whether I installed this from somewhere else the last
time I did this.
Just install the run2 package. It's still available.
Ok. I find the search facility in setup somewhat confusing. I
couldn't find it before. I found it now, and I've installed it.
