SUMMARY

This article provides information about working with the xterm client in Interix.

MORE INFORMATION

The xterm client is one of the X11 clients provided as part of the Interix Workstation Lite, Workstation, and Server packages.

The xterm client is not currently available for Interix on Microsoft Windows NT 3.51. There is a known issue in Windows NT 3.51 which prevents xterm from running, but it is fixed in Windows NT 4.0.

The xterm client starts the Korn shell, and this is not configurable. If you prefer to run in the C shell, you can include a .profile in your home folder which contains the following line:

exec csh -l


NOTE: Remember to invoke the xterm client as a login shell so that the .profile is actually read:

oterm -ls
