GNOME and Sawfish in Redhat 8.0
Posted on 2003-03-04
Does anyone know how to change GNOME's window manager in Redhat 8.0? I would like to use sawfish, which GNOME in Redhat 8.0 does not use as default. I have downloaded the Sawfish rpm package and installed it, and I can start an X session directly into Sawfish, but I can't seem to figure out how to make GNOME use Sawfish as its window manager. My Redhat 7.3 machines have a "window-manager" switching program, but I can't find its 8.0 equivilent.
One thing I tried that did not work was starting a Sawfish X session and then issuing the "gnome-session" command from a terminal in the Sawfish session, with the hopes of them being able to save the session settings. It gave an error saying that there was already a window manager open.
