Blank screen when compiz set as wm
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:40 EST
Description of problem:
For the last couple of releases, if compiz is set under the gconf key
A blank screen comes up after login to gnome. When the key is reset to metacity,
there are no problems.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable compiz as wm through system>preferences>more preferences>desktop effects.
2.Reboot and log into gnome
There is a bug in the gnome-wm script: the compiz) clause is not terminated. The
fix is trivial.

Contrary to the subject line this bug kills all windows managers and
not only compiz. gnome-session simply does not start (or is terminally
confused). Adding a missing line, like in the report, restores sanity.
Thanks guys, sorry for the breakage. The fix should hopefully make tonight's
compose and be in tomorrow's rawhide.
