Error description

  • Function Xutf8SetWMProperties ( ) is defined in:
    /usr/X11R7/inlcude/X11/Xutil.h:
    
    extern void Xutf8SetWMProperties(
      Display*            /* display */,
      Window              /* w */,
      _Xconst char*       /* window_name */,
      _Xconst char*       /* icon_name */,
      char**              /* argv */,
      int                 /* argc */,
      XSizeHints*         /* normal_hints */,
      XWMHints*           /* wm_hints */,
      XClassHint*         /* class_hints */
    );
    
    However, there is no library that contains this
    structure,
    always resulting in an unresolved symbols message.
    
    Customer has gone through every archive and shared object
    in /usr/X11R6 and /usr/X11R7 as well as those in
    /usr/lib/X11
    (which doesn't have many libs) and it is correct, there
    is no
    lib that contains this symbol.
    
    Most of the other UTF-8 structures defined in Xutil.h
    have
    symbols in libX11.a, but not this one. Any plans to
    recompile
    libX11.a with the updated Xutil.h defines?
