I'll probably switch back to Metacity afterward since it has proven extremely responsive and I happen to like my WMs that way. ;) My biggest interest in Sawfish2 was that Metacity wasn't restarting itself when something killed it. A workaround for that problem in Metacity: --- src/session.c 25 Apr 2002 16:25:07 -0000 1.22 +++ src/session.c 27 May 2002 15:32:59 -0000 @@ -286,7 +286,7 @@ SmProp prop1, prop2, prop3, prop4, prop5, prop6, *props; SmPropValue prop1val, prop2val, prop3val, prop4val, prop5val, prop6val; char pid; - char hint = SmRestartIfRunning; + char hint = SmRestartImmediately; char priority = 20; /* low to run before other apps */ prop1.name = SmProgram; This patch comes from Gnome bug 75047, and has been rejected by Havoc as the wrong fix for the problem. Since I'm currently using Metacity out of CVS pending a new release which (I hope) fixes this problem correctly, it works well enough in the interim. The reason for all this worry about the WM not restarting itself is because of a strange crash where fourteen gnome-terminal2's and Metacity died when I changed my desktop font. This problem is, unfortunately, unreproducable. I can't guess if it was perhaps a fluke or a very real bug with some strange trigger condition. =( -- Joseph Carter <email@example.com> Intelligent backside at large * knghtbrd does the ET thing <knghtbrd> anybody got a speak-n-spell?
