Description yngguru 1999-03-22 01:49:58 UTC
For Redhat version 5.9 Starbucks:

If you switch to AnotherLevel using switchdesk, close X,
start X again, and then Restart in WindowMaker, it defaults
to fvwm-1.2, whereupon you cannot switch back to Fvwm95,
because the menu's aren't set correctly.  I tried switching
to AfterStep, and it works.  I installed Everything, so I
know windowMaker loads, but it doesn't load using the
redhat menus.  I inspected a bit of the .Xclients-default
and tried changing the .wm_style to WindowMaker, wmaker,
etc., but to no avail.

Should work with the current devel rpm of WindowMaker, part of
starbuck soon

Don't forget that wmaker.inst needs to be run before windowmaker will
