UWM: Your X-Server doesn't support the SHAPES extension .....
I can't find any reference to SHAPES extension in synaptic. Where
does it reside?
[snip] Just make sure you have this in your XF86Config:
I am actually using xorg.conf, but that was exactly the same. Thanks alot.
Now that I've got rid of the errors, I realise I don't know what window
manager is what.
I'm running selectwm which launches a little dialog box showing a list
of window managers: Gnome, KDE, Enlightenment, Sawfish, Blackbox etc
I'm probably going to go with Enlightenment, but I'm still checking them
I didn't realise Gnome was a window manager. Yet it runs with sawfish.
Makes me think I should be able to choose Gnome and Enlightenment, but how?
When I choose enlightenment, or blackbox for instance, I don't get any
panels with applets as in Gnome. Is there a way to set them up in
Enlightenment? Or doesn't it do them?
I'm launching x-server from the cmd line with startx and an .xinitrc
containing the selectwm command.
