Description of problem:
I have installed kwin-gles:
# yum install kwin-gles
But I can switch it only manually:
$ kwin_gles --replace &
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -q kwin-gles
install kwin-gles in KDE desktop. It's not possible to select it from window manager selector.
reading this post http://weits.blogspot.it/2012/02/kwin-gles-as-default-window-manager-in.html I've created a file /usr/share/kde4/apps/ksmserver/windowmanagers/gles-wm.desktop with the following content:
Now I can switch kwin_gles from settings.
I've changed the component reference to kde-settings because I can't find kwin-gles.
triaging to kde-workspace
kwin-gles is no longer provided (in plasma5), WONTFIX
