    sawfish problems


    Ok I have a problem here with sawfish. I installed a bunch of themes the other day and opened up sawfish to check them out. When I switched to the ugliest theme to see what it looked like, it crashed. Now everytime I open sawfish, it just uses 100% of my cpu and I can't change to another theme. This really sucks btw because this theme is so ugly and doesn't match anything else on my desktop. Anyone know of a config file for sawfish that I could just change it in there?

    rpm -ql

    should list all the files, and you can look for the config file

    The config file is ~/.sawfish/custom. It's a lisp script that sawfish runs at startup. I guess you know lisp, but if not, just search for the name of the ugly theme, and replace it with the name of a nice theme.
