Lenny - window manager seems to have died.
I have a dual core AMD64 with a fairly fresh install of Lenny, just the
last couple of days I have noticed my window controls have disappeared.
I have tried to reload metacity, which I think is the default window
manager for Debian Lenny, but nothing happens.
However if I load another wm, #icewm --replace &
Then I get my window controls back but only until I log out, log back
in and now window controls again.
Tried uninstalling and reinstalling metacity, if I try to reload it, I
get a cryptic error message:
"Window manager warning: 0 stored in GConf key /desktop/gnome/
peripherals/mouse/cursor_size is not a reasonable cursor_size; must be
in the range 1 .. 128"
Anyone suggest what I can do to sort the problem?
