I am using ezppp with RH5 and the program works great but I am not getting a title bar on the window. I know that I have to edit some file. I am using the afterstep window manager with xfree86.

The only thing that I can think of that would cause this is having a "Style" defined for ezppp or something similar (in name).  You need to redefine a new style in your .steprc file.

Look in your home directory for a file called ".steprc".  If you don't have one, copy "/etc/X11/afterstep/system.steprc" to your home directory and rename it.  If you still can't find a ".steprc", do a "find / -name *steprc*".  That should turn one up.

Once you've got a ".steprc" in your home directory, find the section of your file for defining Styles.  You can find this by searching for lines beginning with "Style".  In that section, put exactly this:
Style "ezppp" Title

That should do the trick.  You could also look at the other Styles to see if one is conflicting.  For example, if one of them says "Style "*pp*" NoTitle", then this will affect any window with "pp" somewhere in the title.

Hope this helps ... let me know how it turns out.
