    GNOME effects?

    I really like the GNOME desktop, however, I recently installed Enlightnment and I like 3 things:

    1) The slide effect when moving between workspaces
    2) Eterm
    3) The ripple effect at bottom

    My question: How can I do those things under Gnome?

    Or is this not possible?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Just use Enlightenment as a window manager while running Gnome. I've never done this before, but I think you have to open up the Gnome Control Panel and select Enlightenment under the "Window Manager" tab. Tell me if it works.

    BTW, please don't double post.

    Sorry, made a mistake in the forum which I was posting.

    As for using enlightnment...there is no such thing under any control panel I can find.

    you could change metacity to enlightenment in rc.conf, I don't know if it will work, probably not, but, you can try it, tell us if you have any luck with that one.

    I am using Mandrake 10.1

    Did updatedb, and then locate rc.conf.

    It does not exist on my system.

    I would think it would have something to do with ~/.xinitrc perhaps.

    You can try something like
    exec enlightenment &
    exec gnome-session
    in your ~/.xinitrc file. But it might be more complicated than that.

    Hmm, my .xinitrc looks like this:

    exec /usr/bin/enlightenment

    Yet, Enlightenment does not boot up, but whatever I select on the Mandrake boot manager does (usually GNOME).
