Little Xlib test program
a) it would be awfully nice, if you would attach some comments on how to compile
your program (aside from the fact, that the code was buggy and was missing some
b) reading today's message on xorg list
(http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.comp.freedesktop.xorg/22496) by Keith Packard,
I feel that this is something we won't fix here.
Closing as WONTFIX.
The top of the test program looks like this:
* Draw 0 and 1 width lines
* build with: gcc xlines.c -lX11 -o xlines -lm
* Pat Kane 2007
what did I forget to include? Does that gcc line not work for you?
Yes, I agree that the "bug" can not be fixed without violating the
broken X spec. But gosh, someone went to a lot of effort to make
those ugly wide X lines.
Sorry for the noise.
plus adding the gcc line
(gcc -o xlines -lX11 -lm xlines.c) even to the comments would be nice -- I have
a lot of bugs to see every day.
b) I understand your pain, but if you want to have this fixed, then probably the
way to do it is to file this bug into http://bugs.freedesktop.org -- we have
enough bugs to make us busy even without fixing specs.
