Detecting language please wait for.......
I have tried couple of open source X-emulation software like Xterm and Mobaxterm to connect to XPP. While using both these I am able to open XPP Pathfinder but not able to open any division in edit or view mode.
Any inputs, what I may be doing wrong or missing on something?
Wow Jay, you are dating yourself remembering the colon to underbar conversion. That was IPS 6.0.
Or better yet, we (SDL) would recommend upgrading to XPP 9.4.
Thanks, Jonathan! Good answer to a poorly-asked question. This was the key info I needed: "GTK on UNIX is still X11-based, so you still need an X/Server"
Just a follow-up to note that starting with the XPP 9.2.0 release that the XyView and Sdedit (and other GUI) applications became GTK-based (instead of Motif-based) on the Linux and Windows platforms.

That is indeed the best resolution to this problem. Just upgrade to 9.2 and forget about all possible trouble with X-windows and Xwindows emulators. It has haunted us long enough :-)
I remember that change as if it was yesterday - so many changes (improvements) since.
Yes, I am that old, Steve! But then I remember Uniplus+ (Unisoft), and I also know why XYV_EXECS points to "xz" and not "xy" (it's not Xzvision).
I'm not sure if it's a boast or an admission to say that I was responsible for both the ":" and the "z" in xz, alljobz and sd_liz.
Marc,I would call it an admission + a serious dating (even more than Jay's) at the same time
IPS 6.0 aka the shortest lived major release in the history of the product? (actually it was only half a major release as only available for "new" installations running on Windows)
That's right, Bart. Most of us didn't have to deal with it until 7.0
I thought the mention of Uniplus+ would date me, Bart. I can still see the the word printing on the dot-matrix console terminal at system boot-up, like it was yesterday. SVR3 for the Motorola 68000 series.
Marc, I knew about xz, but not the ":" !
