Ok, i added:

setenv MANPATH "${MANPATH}:/usr/X11R6/man"
setenv PATH "${PATH}:/usr/X11R6/bin"

to my .tcshrc and it worked..

Now for an Xchat question.. Making the Window Transparent in the Settings brings up an error:

" Unable ot get root window pixmap!

You may need to use esetroot or Gnome control-center to set your background"

I don't want to use an image, just a transparent black bg.

Im not sure if you mean tranparent or tint, but for TINT you need;


You NEED the devel one,and both to be installed before you compile xchat so it can find the dep. If they werent before you need to recompile xchat for the tint to work. The Precompiled binary for darwin wont wok, you ahve to compile it yourself with gdk-pixbuf packages installed.

I had that problem in fBSD a while ago and realised tey werent installed. recompiled, and all was fine. Again, this is for TINT (i'm not sure if thats what you were talking about - just trying to help out)

Hi, yes i have managed it to use xchat.
Your problem is, that you have to set the display first: add this to your .bashrc or whatever shell you use.

DISPLAY="0:0"; export Display

I use xchat with XDarwin and OroborOSX and i have to start OroborOSX first.

Good luck Selket
