control-center tries to start wmakerconf, which is no longer present
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:41:08 EDT
control-center "configure window manager" option for wmaker doesn't work:
tries to run non-shipped program.
How Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install including Window Maker as option.
2. Start Gnome.
3. Main menu -> Settings -> Desktop -> Window manager -> select windowmaker
4. Hit "run configuration tool for Window Maker"
Console messages say wmakerconf: not found. Indeed, I don't see it on the
The fix is either to restore wmakerconf to the distribution, or to make it
run /usr/lib/GNUstep/Apps/WPrefs.app/WPrefs instead. (I cannot imagine why
it lives there, but since it does, you have to give the pathname because of
course it's not on PATH. )
Bryce what's it supposed to run?
Wow, WPrefs crashes all over the place. ;-) Plus can't load its defaults on
startup or something.
What in the _world_ is it doing in /usr/lib? If WindowMaker is for GNUStep why
don't we just delete it until we start shipping GNUStep? ;-)
Ah,.. well having poped around to see what you were at, you were running a
totally busted version of windowmaker
should have been 0.80.0-7
any 0.80.1 stuff that you may have is just plain *wrong*
control-center 126.96.36.199-26 changes the config tool
