Description Krzysio (Chris) Leszczynski 2001-05-27 12:27:16 EDT

User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686)

Description of problem:
I can't run WindowMaker as my manager because gdm doesn't see it

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just install WindowMaker, run gdm.
	

Actual Results:  WindowMaker wasn't included in window-manager list

Expected Results:  I'd expect to see WindowMaker in gdm managers' list

Additional info:

I have fixed the problem by adding the file:
/etc/X11/gdm/Sessions/WindowMaker
	#!/bin/bash
	exec /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession windowmaker
but I think the similar file should be included in WindowMaker rpm file.
