Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:55:38 EDT
Description of problem:
sawfish-ui is not started when I select Windows from Preferences Menu.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start sawfish window manger...
2. Select Preferences->Windows
Cannot start the preferences application for you window manager
Window manager "" has not registered a configuration tool
Config tool starts
Sawfish is provided on an "as-is" basis, the Windows control panel would display
a Sawfish tool if Sawfish provided one. We don't do any active development
work to enhance Sawfish, however, we only fix packaging issues with it and
Sawfish does provide a config tool, and installs an associated desktop file on
/usr/share/gnome/wm-properties/, but perhaps something else is needed these days?
Yes, you have to hook up the backend for gnome-window-properties, essentially.
If you look at the gnome-window-properties source code it should be reasonably
clear what needs coding.
Seemes to be fixed in current CVS version of Sawfish.
