Description ronny.lampert 2002-01-25 12:59:01 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.72 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.19 i586)

Description of problem:
gnome-* installed
sawmill installed
No enlightenment
-> gnome will start up, but not having any WM running.
An strace on "gnome-session" will reveal, that "/usr/bin/gnome-wm" is NOT used,
but "enlightenment" with various paths directly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1.0.55-12

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1) Install gnome + kde
2) rm -r ~/.gnome*	(to reset everything)
3) startx

Expected Results:  gnome-session (which is called by xinit) should use gnome-wm
to probe for a WM.
