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?
Gnome is not a window manager. Gnome contains many programs, one of
which is a window manager.
There should be a Gnome setting for changing the window manager. So
you could try that. Alas, as I don't use Gnome myself, I don't know
where to find that setting.
by changing the window manager command in here
I discovered that sawfish, metacity and enlightenment work. Blackbox and
uwm don't (weird effects happen instead though - quite interesting!).
Still to try wmaker and a couple of others.
I haven't found a window manager fulfills all the little quirks that I
want a window manager to perform yet.
This thread is turning into a bit of monologue. Does nobody else have
issues with their window manager? Or even better, solved them?
