Ah ha! - ok, I think I can solve your tkdesk problem. As root, go
edit the file /etc/X11/XF86Config and find the line that says
And add immediately below it the following lines:
Then (after exiting X and logging back in again) all should be well.
As for your afterstep problem, it keeps getting weirder. Try this:
remove your ~/.xsession and then as root edit the file
/etc/X11/window-managers and move the line that talks about afterstep
to the top of the list.
If that doesn't work (or if there is no afterstep line in
/etc/X11/window-managers), then maybe there's something wrong with the
afterstep install. Tell me, does running "afterstep" inside an xterm
say something about another WM is running or "the screen is already
being managed" or something similar? (This is what should happen) If
instead it says "command not found" then afterstep is not properly
installed. Re-install afterstep.
