Description Dietmar Lettau 2001-08-29 01:17:35 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.0; Windows 98; DigExt)

Description of problem:
When installing Windowmaker, two files are created in the $HOME/GNUstep-
Directory which contain non valid information. The files are 
Defaults/WMRootMenu Library/WindowMaker/plmenu.de , the wrong information 
is the path "/home/mawa" instead of "$HOME".

Greetings
Dietmar Lettau

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
? That used in RH7.1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose save Layout
2. Choose load layout


Actual Results:  Error is visible in the .X.err -File


Expected Results:  The files should be loaded from $HOME..., not 
from /home/mawa, cause this seems to be the home-Directory of the guy who 
programmed that stuff.

Additional info:

"perl -p -i -e 's/\/home\/mawa/\$HOME/g' Defaults/WMRootMenu 
Library/WindowMaker/plmenu.de"
fixes the problem ;-)

I'll (eventually) get around to backporting the rawhide version to 7.0/7.1/7.2

If you can't wait that long, the SRPM is available
ftp://rawhide.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/rawhide/SRPMS/SRPMS/
WindowMaker-0.80.0-5.src.rpm

There should be some apps to go with it in the tree later tonight (wmix /
wmclock / wmapm)
