Description Massimiliano 2013-05-19 10:06:32 EDT
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

How reproducible:
install kwin-gles in KDE desktop. It's not possible to select it from window manager selector.

Additional info:
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:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=KWin GLES

Now I can switch kwin_gles from settings.
Comment 1 Massimiliano 2013-05-19 10:13:02 EDT
I've changed the component reference to kde-settings because I can't find kwin-gles.
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2013-05-19 10:53:58 EDT
triaging to kde-workspace
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2015-03-06 10:56:57 EST
kwin-gles is no longer provided (in plasma5), WONTFIX
