replacing window manager in gnome
I am trying to replace metacity in gnome with something else such as
sawfish but I've got problems.
Now that I installed sawfish, blackbox and enlightenment to try them
out, x-windows takes 5 times as long to start, pausing for ages on the
'window manager' stage (according to the debian splash screen)
I used apt-get to fetch the window manager packages, but I expect there
is some more configuration I need to do but I can't find any docs on it.
I have tried to use selectwm, but it is not proving successful. If I
choose sawfish for instance, I get error messages such as
"your X server doesn't suppot the SHAPE extension; aborting"
Anybody know what I should do here?
