  that's strange, on my system:

jojda:~>dpkg -S /etc/GNUstep/Defaults/WindowMaker
wmaker: /etc/GNUstep/Defaults/WindowMaker

  and the file is indeed there. do you get any errors when trying to
install wmaker? did you try to purge it and then reinstall? what do you
get when you run the above dpkg command?

  there are quite a few active bugs against wmaker pacage, lot of them
over one year old, maybe it's not even maintained anymore?
