For the records: the week after my previous comment, I implemented advanced italic overhang handling. Released in 2.7.6.

hi, when I was trying to install gnupg (after installing cygwin), this error popped up:

PS C:\Windows\system32> cyg-get gnupg
Attempting to install cygwin packages: gnupg

To install please call ‘choco install cygwin’ (optionally add -y to autoconfirm).

What would that have to do with mintty?

Let's talk about the mintty for Windows Store .
mintty
@mintty
OK.
Biswapriyo Nath
@Biswa96
Do you solve that pvk2pfx.exe problem? I think why not you just publish the appx and then write all the readme and build procedure.
mintty
@mintty
1. No.
1. Have you checked whether it's actually possible to publish an appx with a test certificate? I'm not sure, and I was assuming we're going to publish instruction how to build an appx package with the user's own test certificate...
1. I feel you're eager to get forward but I'm busy with work and other stuff too, so if you want my feedback, please have some patience :/
(4) Once we're done, maybe we can arrange some sponsored certificate; and I'll gladly leave it to you to publish the package then and earn the reputation...

@Biswa96
I thought you will going to publish in Windows store. Ok, as you wish, I shall concentrate on writing the instructions. I don't want to earn reputation. I just love coding....

@Biswa96
As I said I'm making a batch script that make that appx automatically. But the msbuild from Windows\FrameWork shows some error. So one has to install visual studio. I'm now depending on Appveyor CI. See this ://stackoverflow.com/q/43065264/8928481

I am working on a 64-bit windows 10 machine, i was trying to build libopencm3 but for it i needed both python and gcc cross compiler

This is absolutely not a mintty question.

Hello. When I run the mintty.exe that comes with Git Bash, I see this window: https://i.imgur.com/FRZYZ2k.png
Where is that defined in the mintty source code, and how do I get mintty to choose a specific shell by default?
David Macek
@elieux
@brianpeiris, this is a downstream patch.
Upstream developers don't know about it.
The patch lives in a msys2-packages repo either in the Git for Windows org. or under Alexpux.
And if you want a specific "shell", you should use the appropriate launcher, not just start the terminal.
David Macek
@elieux
I'm not sure if Git for Windows even comes with a notion of different "shells".
Brian Peiris
@brianpeiris
Ah, interesting. Thanks for the info!

Hello
I need some help regarding drag n drop directories in mintty or cygwin using Mintty
the issue is that when I drag it the prompt recognize the path but with single back slash "\" is it a way to permit single back slash or when I drag the route ... drag with double slashes ?

Ruslan Gonzalez@RUSO ~
$cd C://wamp2 Ruslan Gonzalez@RUSO /cygdrive/c/wamp2$ cd C:\\wamp2

Ruslan Gonzalez@RUSO /cygdrive/c/wamp2
$cd C:\\wamp2\www bash: cd: C:\wamp2www: No such file or directory Ruslan Gonzalez@RUSO /cygdrive/c/wamp2$ cd C:\\wamp2\\www

Ruslan Gonzalez@RUSO /cygdrive/c/wamp2/www

@mintty
If you drag a file system item (e.g. from an Explorer window), the path will be converted to POSIX syntax (no backslash).
If it wasn't converted, you've pasted text format (the clipboard is tagged with content types...) which will not be converted.
Backslash on the command line needs either escaping or enclosing in single quotes: cd 'C:\wamp2\www'.

Thanks for explanation

Mintty supports 24 bit color, what does a cygwin user need to do to make that work. I know there is mention of *-direct but the information said something else needed to be installed to make that work.
mintty
@mintty
The terminal provides support via escape sequences. Any application that sends the respective sequences can make use of the feature, nothing else needs to be installed.
Applications that access the terminal capabilities only via terminfo or ncurses, on the other hand, would need the xterm-direct or mintty-direct terminfo description which is not yet available in cygwin.

thank you for the clarification

Hi there. I'm trying to make alternate emoji sets work in wsltty without luck
I was originalyl going to file a github issue but realise now this wouldn't be appropriate
so just going to paste what I was going to write:
The Tips section for emojis needs to be updated. The script for the Unicode site no longer works, because the site now pulls all assets dynamically so you can't just save them.
It seems no browser - or even wget, can get around this, and they don't save. The sole exception is IE11, which saves everything as 0-byte temp files.
I have also been unable to use other emojis with wsltty (I tried with twemoji), even after batch-renaming all files and similar efforts. Please consider inheriting the native Windows 10 emoji pack (my preferred) in addition to offering this if at all possible...
my connection's a bit 'all over the place' and I don't run a bnc anymore, but this is all logged on Gitter so feel free to respond whenever if you have any ideas, I know the irc way :) cheers!
mintty
@mintty
I'll look into the unicode.org issue, wasn't aware yet.
The set of supported emoji styles is currently fixed because file name conventions differ among the published emojis so some access details need to be hard-coded unfortunately. If you point me to additional repositories, I'll take a look. The Windows emoji pack - how is it installed and how are they accessed? I'd expect they hide their stuff in some cryptic containers as they like to do...

mintty: I actually changed the filenames on twemoji to match the noto ones 1:1. Noto worked out of the box per the intstructions on the tips page. Even if some of them were different, a good number of files should have still been picked up and used. You can find the very latest twemoji (Twitter) here: https://github.com/twitter/twemoji/tree/gh-pages/v
I know it seems like a frivolous feature, but I use them a lot in WeeChat, which I'm speaking through right now. They make for great replacement text for various symbols in the UI
I don't use a lot of curses applications but I imagine I'd use them elsewhere if I did
mintty
@mintty
So if these are the Twitter emojis, it's actually not another style.
