The X Window System: Programming and Applications with Xt, OSF/Motif (2nd Edition)

This completely updated and revised version of the best-selling First Edition describes how to develop interactive applications for the X Window System using the Motif user interface toolkit.The X Window System is the industry-standard software system that allows programmers to develop portable graphical user interfaces. Motif is a high-level user-interface toolkit that makes it easier to write applications that use the X Window System. Shows how to use the facilities of all three Motif libraries—Xlib, Xt Intrinsics, and visual components. Explains the Resource Manager; primitive Motif widgets; manager widgets; menus; dialogs; events and other input techniques; using color; bitmaps, pixmaps, and images; graphics contexts; text and fonts; Xlib graphics; interclient communication; creating new widget classes; creating manager widget classes; and constraint-based widget classes. For programmers developing interactive applications for the X Window System using the Motif user-interface toolkit.

The Joy of X: The Architecture of the X Window System

The Joy of X: The Architecture of the X Window System

Aimed at those new to the system seeking an overall understanding first, and written in a clear, uncomplicated style, this reprint of the much-cited 1993 classic describes the standard windowing system for Linux, UNIX, and other operating systems. Widely recommended as a course text, this thorough representation of the entire X window system allows complete understanding of the relation between its various components, and how they interact with applications. Although this is a technical book, it does not assume advanced programming or system-administrative experience—great for those laying a foundation for later work. This is an ideal guide for system and network managers, programmers, and technical-end users.

008: X Windows System Administrator's Guide, Vol 8 (Definitive Guides to the X Window System)

008: X Windows System Administrator's Guide, Vol 8 (Definitive Guides to the X Window System)

As X moves out of the hacker's domain and into the "real world," users can't be expected to master all the ins and outs of setting up and administering their own X software. That will increasingly become the domain of system administrators. Even for experienced system administrators, X raises many issues, both because of subtle changes in the standard UNIX way of doing things and because X blurs the boundaries between different platforms. Under X, users can run applications across the network on systems with different resources (including fonts, colors, and screen size). Many of these issues are poorly understood, and the technology for dealing with them is in rapid flux.This book is the first and only book devoted to the issues of system administration for X and X-based networks, written not just for UNIX system administrators but for anyone faced with the job of administering X (including those running X on stand-alone workstations). The book includes:An overview of X that focuses on issues that affect the system administrator's job.Information on obtaining, compiling, and installing the X software, including a discussion of the trade-offs between vendor-supplied and the free MIT versions of X.How to set up xdm, the X display manager, which takes the place of the login program ...

OpenGL Programming for the X Window System

OpenGL Programming for the X Window System

OpenGL is the fastest and most widely available software standard for producing high-quality color images of 3D scenes. This practical guide shows X programmers how to construct working 3D applications using OpenGL and how to tightly integrate OpenGL applications with the X Window System.Written by a Silicon Graphics X Window System and OpenGL expert, OpenGL Programming for the X Window System uses the OpenGL Utility Toolkit (GLUT) to show how OpenGL programs can be constructed quickly and explores OpenGL features using examples written with GLUT. This book also explains the GLX model for integrating OpenGL and Xlib; shows how to use OpenGL with Motif and other widget sets; discusses the latest OpenGL standards: OpenGL 1.1, GLX 1.2, and GLU 1.2; covers advanced topics such as alternative input devices and overlays; includes valuable information for ensuring OpenGL portability and interoperability: and provides pointers for performance tuning.Each chapter contains source code demonstrating the techniques described. Source code for all the examples provided, and for the GLUT library itself, are available for downloading via the Internet.Intended for C programmers familiar with the Xlib and/or Motif programming interfaces. No previous OpenGL knowledge is required.

It describes the role of the server and client and demonstrates the network transactions that take place during a minimal client session.Part Two contains an extensive set of reference pages for each protocol request and event. It is a reformatted and reorganized version of the X Consortium's Protocol specification. All material from the original document is present in this manual, and the material in the reference pages is reorganized to provide easier access. Each protocol request or event is treated as a separate, alphabetized reference page. Reference pages include the encoding of requests and replies.Part Three consists of several appendices describing particular parts of the X Protocol, along with several reference aids.Note: This fourth edition does not contain the Inter-Client Communication Conventions Manual (ICCCM) or the X Logical Font Description Convention (XLFD). This material will be included in an upcoming O'Reilly book.
