    changing the default windows manager


    I recently installed Blackbox on my rh9 installation. I cant seem to get it to start. when ever I startx. It goes directly to GNOME.

    where do I go to change the default windows manager. I looked @ the desktop configuration tool and it only shows twm and gnome.

    Is there a command line utlity i can use or a file I can edit. A man page or how to???

    Try the "switchdesk" program.

    i think if you edit "xinit.rc" in your home dir and put "exec blackbox" in near the end of the file when you run startx it will open blackbox (i think)
