    How to change the Windowmanager


    I want to use another Windowmanager. I currenlty use GNOME. But if I want to use windowmaker or KDE, which changes have to be done. I want to start automatically the new frontend. Any suggestions?

    THX,

    If you are using the graphical login manager there should be a button at the bottom of the box labled Menu. there should be a choice labled session click on it and it will give you an option of the diffrent window managers that you have installed. I believe the default setup is for the WM that you last chose to be started by default at the next login.
    Long live the revolution!
    Have a nice day.
