Last modified: 2013-01-09 23:47:00 EST
Description of problem:
$ gconftool-2 --get /apps/gnome-session/gnome-wm/preferred_window_manager
Then, desktop-effect uses /apps/gnome-session/rh/window_manager.
See Also : bug 447309
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Changed in 2.23.91-0.20080828.1.fc10.i386, again.
$ gconftool-2 --get /desktop/gnome/session/required-components/windowmanager
$ cat /usr/bin/gnome-wm | grep windowmanager
# If this is not set, we search a list of known windowmanagers and use
WINDOW_MANAGER=`gconftool-2 --get /desktop/gnome/session/required-components/windowmanager 2> /dev/null`
$ cat /usr/bin/gnome-wm | grep windowmanager# If this is not set, we search a list of known windowmanagers and use
WINDOW_MANAGER=`gconftool-2 --get /desktop/gnome/session/required_components/windowmanager 2> /dev/null`
# Now create options OPT1, OPT2 and OPT3 based on the windowmanager used
#FIXME: add all other windowmanagers here with their proper options
$ gconftool-2 --get /desktop/gnome/session/required_components/windowmanager
Can you summarize exactly what the bug is here and what you think should be fixed?
It is hard to tell how this bug should be triaged

default gconf windowmanger value was changed in new gnome-session version.
Then, desktop-effects doen't use the gconf value.( current desktop-effects uses /apps/gnome-session/rh/window_manager.)
So, although click "Enable desktop effects" button on dektop-effects, gnome doesn't start with compiz at next login.
Thanks! that is much clearer. I think the summary should reflect your last sentence which is really the punch line :) I'll change it.
