Description jmccann 2008-08-26 14:39:39 EDT
Description of problem:
With gnome-session 2.23 we have deprecated the gnome-wm script in favor of having WMs install desktop files and change the /desktop/gnome/session/required-components/windowmanager gconf key.

Since compiz must be started in a very specific way to be useful, we should install a driver script by default.  Previously, gnome-wm had been the de-facto driver script.

I propose that we call this script compiz-gtk.  We should install a corresponding desktop file into the XDG application dirs for it.

Some parts of compiz-manager may be able to be used for this new script... http://gitweb.compiz-fusion.org/?p=fusion/misc/compiz-manager;a=tree
