Description Telsa Gwynne 2001-07-06 10:31:55 UTC
Description of Problem:

This is an old problem. When I change to WindowMaker through the
control center, and then click "Run Configuration Tool for WindowMaker",
it doesn't get run.

How Reproducible:	every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Gnome. Have WindowMaker installed, but be using something else.
2. control-center->window manager-> select "windowmaker" and "OK".
Wait for ten-second countdown.
3. return to control-center. Click "Run Configuration Tool For WindowMaker"

Actual Results:		nothing happens
Expected Results:	configuration tool should run *or* tell me why it

Additional Information:

I can run WPrefs fine from the wmaker applications menu (appearance->
configuration tool). I think gnomecc looks in the wrong place. strace
on gnomecc says

poll(/bin/sh: /usr/X11R6/lib/GNUstep/Apps/WPrefs.app/WPrefs: No such fil
or directory
