Xwinder - how does it work?

Postby lee griggs » 17 Sep 2012, 13:02

Hi,

I just installed some new software that seems to continuously refresh a window. However, it was very buggy to use. I found out it was conflicting with X-Winder. I closed X-Winder and it ran fine.

The question is - What is X-Winder doing behind the scenes that is causing this conflict?

Any information would be useful, so that I can figure out if its possible to resolve the conflict.

Many thanks,
Lee

I believe that it uses the accessibility features of the operating system, which are designed for tools like this that interface with nontraditional input devices, as well as some some software utilities to help make systems more usable for various sets of people. I don't really have a lot of details, though I think the XWinder source code is available somewhere. You may also want to say which platform you're having trouble on.

Thanks Peter.
The Xwinder source code is useful.
I am using Windows 7.

Lee, to be sure, did you find the source code? I would expect to have a copy of it, but I can't find it. I am guessing it is included in the driver installer for Mac OS X and Windows, but it may bethat I failed to obtain it when I was trying to collect everything. Let us know, because if you didn't find it, I want it to be known in this thread that you are asking for it in hopes that someone can provide it and Torben can add it to the downloads.
