Description of problem:
Gnome used to allow other window managers to be run instead of what ever is
being run now. This does not seem to work any more.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install RH 7.x or some version that has GNOME.
2. go to the control center
3. you should be able to change the window manager to some other window mandger
4. install 9.x
5. you now cannot
Actual Results: can find any way to change window manager
Expected Results: should be able to run window maker as the gnome window manager
is this still possible?
It does let you run another window manager, but no there's no control panel
for it, and no plans to add one. Has been discussed many times, google
should turn up some threads.
Actually I just found out a way to do this. In the control panel, go to the
Add WindowMaker(wmaker) as a astart up program with he order of 20.
In the Current Session delete metacity.
Log out and log in, and it works.
