>i'd like to fool around with another wm. Which one would you recommend?
I like windowmaker a lot. lean, great look and feel, works well, no little
cartoon trash can or home icons (i'm old-fashioned), easy to configure the way I
like it. This is based on the much-praised next interface.
The only problem is that when I run some gnome applications, nautilus hijacks
the desktop, changes the background, etc. To stop this, I did chown root:root
and chmod 000 for Desktop and .gconfd. I am sure someone here knows a less
brutal way of keeping gnome at bay...
