hmmm wmaker is your default?
try commenting out wmaker.
If that works...try this:
move the GNUstep directory in your home drive to a new name.
then try...wmaker will recreate its standard GNUstep dir...
I found that I many times set somethin in wmaker and next thing I knew
wmaker wouldn't run anymore...in fact...all I got
was twm (which afaik isn't even listed in my window-managers file...
I hate twm)
maybe this will fix it? give it a try
course...I went back to fvwm2 last nnight...I find I prefer
fvwm2 with tkdesk to wmaker

I sorta agree...it is different...hmmm
could take out fvwm2 sources...strip em down totally...
take out all the code for most functions... get rid of all window
decorations... no titlebar...no fram...
just a window manager with 1 function..it lets you move windows
