  • After installing I can start eXalt, but I can't display any xclients to it.

    A. Make sure you add the local NT machine's node name and the host machine's node name via the Select Hosts dialog box found in the eXalt program group.

  • When trying to use the Initiate Client dialog box to start xclients, nothing happens.

    A. Make sure your Host field contains the correct host machine, specify the full path of the xclient, include the -display option with your NT machine's node name:0, use a valid User ID, verify TCP/IP connection to host machine, make sure all caveats of using rsh or rexec are heeded, i.e for rsh method, make sure user account has valid .rhosts file setup.

  • How do I add fonts to eXalt?

    A. eXalt will accept bdf source or X11R5 pcf fonts. Copy the source fonts from the host machine to a directory on your NT machine. Then run the program MKFNTDIR.EXE located in the \WIN32APP\INGR\EXALT\BIN\ on that directory. Add that font path to the existing font paths using the Font Path Options dialog box in the eXalt program group.

  • When I start eXalt it says it has an invalid font path and it won't start.

    A. Check the Font Path Options box to see what the installed font paths are versus what fonts were selected during the install. The fonts will be put into \WIN32APP\INGR\EXALT\FONT\XXX where "XXX" corresponds to each of the components you should see in the Font Path Options box.

  • When I display an xclient to eXalt, it says that it can't find a certain color.

    A. If you know the rgb value of the color your xclient is expecting, you can add this and the associated string name of the color to eXalt using the Color Database Options dialog box.

  • When I display an xclient to eXalt, the colors look funny, or all of the pixmaps are one color.

    A. Perhaps eXalt is having a problem with the video driver you are using or the color-depth you are using. See how many colors you are setup for under the WindowsNT Setup dialog. If your display driver isn't using 8bit (256 colors) or 24-bit (16.7 million), try one of those to see if that clears the problem.

  • My mouse on my NT machine only has a 2-buttons, how do I do cut and paste text in an xterm with the mouse?

    A. In your $HOME/.Xdefaults put the following: XTerm*VT100.Translations: #override \ <Btn3Down>: ignore()\n\ <Btn3Up>: insert-selection(PRIMARY, CUT_BUFFER0).

  • What is the difference between Single Window Mode and Multiple Window Mode?

    A. In Single Window Mode, eXalt starts up as one, large, single window and all xclients displayed to eXalt are contained within this window. This behavior is more analogous to traditional X workstations and X Terminals. This gives eXalt the concept of a "root" X window that some X applications expect. This mode also allows a window manager such as Motif to be displayed to eXalt to manage the display. Multiple Window Mode is more analogous to the Microsoft Windows environment. Each x application displayed to eXalt in this mode will appear in its own window that is managed by the Microsoft Window Manager. There is no concept of a "root" X window in this mode.
