Description Joshua Jensen 2002-05-06 18:38:17 EDT
Description of Problem:

switchdesk doesn't give the user the choice of using open motif, even if
OpenMotif is installed.

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

[root@mule root]# rpm -qa | egrep "motif|switch"
switchdesk-3.9.8-2
switchdesk-gnome-3.9.8-2
openmotif-2.2.2-5
switchdesk-kde-3.9.8-2

Please fix.
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-05-07 05:58:51 EDT
OpenMotif is a widget set, not a desktop environment.
Comment 2 Joshua Jensen 2002-05-07 09:55:13 EDT
Whatever it "is", here is my point:

[joshua@thunderbird joshua]$ rpm -qf /usr/X11R6/bin/mwm 

openmotif-2.2.2-5

I can have "exec mwm" in my .Xclients... switchdesk should be able to do this.
Comment 3 Joshua Jensen 2002-07-02 11:03:47 EDT
Still doesn't work in Milan beta 2+ with switchdesk 3.9.8-4.  It can't be that hard:

if [ -x /usr/X11R6/bin/mwm ]; then
        add_mwm_to_menu();
fi
Comment 4 Joshua Jensen 2002-07-09 16:23:27 EDT
Still doesn't work in Beta 3.
Comment 5 Preston Brown 2002-07-10 12:37:25 EDT
 we really aren't supporting this utility any more.
