Re: How to display a clickable button in our beloved IRIX motif style.

Here you go, no gnu make required. There's code here for regular C files, isn't that superflous? Also note that tabs are required before the shell commands, and this paste will mangle them. #!smake APP_NAME = button C_SRCS = C_OBJS = $(C_SRCS:S/.c/.o/) CXX_SRCS = Main.C CXX_OBJS = $(CXX_SRCS:S/.C/.o...

Re: Bought a mint condition o2.

Re: Quake II questions on O2

You don't need to change any X resources, just put set _windowed_mouse "1" into your baseq2/config.cfg and it'll automatically grab your mouse pointer.
