Cygwin/MSYS connector

This helper tool for ConEmu-Maximus5 provides POSIX environment for:

  • Cygwin: conemu-cyg-32.exe and conemu-cyg-64.exe;
  • MSYS 1.0: conemu-msys-32.exe;
  • MSYS 2.0: conemu-msys2-32.exe and conemu-msys2-64.exe.

How to use connector

How to install and use connector read in ConEmu docs.

Please note, status of this plugin is ‘Experimental’.

WARNING

  • Do not run connector from cygwin or msys shell! Different cygwin/msys layers will cause problems!
  • Connector might be started as ROOT PROCESS or from some native shell (like cmd.exe) already started in ConEmu.

Some build notes

Some preparations may be required to build ‘connector’ from sources.

Common

Copy set_vars_user.sample.cmd to set_vars_user.cmd and edit new file to define your own paths to used toolchains (cygwin, msys) and utilities.

MinGW / MSys 1.0

  • Run bin\mingw-get.exe.
  • Select ‘MSYS System Builder / msys-gcc’ to install and ‘Apply changes’ from menu.

Cygwin 32/64 bit

I used to install 32bit and 64bit cygwin toolchains into separate folders to avoid path problems.

  • In cygwin setup utility setup-x86.exe (32-bit) or setup-x86_64.exe (64-bit) type ‘g++’ in the ‘search’ field.
  • Install ‘gcc-g++: GNU Compiler Collection (C++)’. If you don't see it, choose ‘Full’ in the ‘View’ drop-down listbox. Don't install toolchains which package name are started with ‘mingw’ or ‘cygwin’.
  • Complete cygwin installation or update.
