Contents of the README file


This archive contains three tar archives for "mgr" which is the
windowing system ported to Linux from SunSparc. The files are:

mgr_doc.tar ...... man pages and docs for mgr.
mgr_demo.tar ...... sample applications for mgr (not all have been ported)
mgrbilib.tar ...... library to compile mgr and mgr applications
mgr.1 ...... man page for mgr.

Please note that the mgr port for Linux is still evolving and that you
should follow the happenings in Usenet's comp.os.linux. Also, remember
that mgr is a different windowing system than X Windows. Generally,
mgr will require less system resources compared to X Windows.

Well I finally have MGR working pretty good.
In getting MGR installed on my system I discovered a couple of things.
The first and most important is that to run it you should either enter:

mgr -mouse /dev/ttys1

ttys1 being whatever port your mouse is on, or you should also be able
to link /dev/mouse with the port your mouse is on.

Second, and of minimal importance when MGR starts up and say's "Hit and
Key" you need to hit ENTER, at least I do on my system.

Here are a couple of tips for anyone trying to get MGR working:

1. Don't run it as root
2. Add the termcap entry to your termcap
3. Use a small font such as cour6x12r.fnt

I have managed to get several programs to run in the windows, including
XComm.
