awright, laugh, giggle, shake your head in disgust, but i just want to
know how to make fc3 behave like my trusty rh7.3 desktop. i don't
tolerate bluecurve/metacity very well. it's like shoes that don't fit
right. no window snap or viewports. uggh.
i read the doc, faq, hacking, install, news, options, and readme. also,
i scanned the mailing list for topics related. none of these really
tell how to supplant bluecurve/metacity. i tried changing the desktop
it didn't work.
in 'red hat linux fedora 3 unleashed' it said to just edit the .xinitrc
and add xsetroot, gnome-panel, and finally sawfish.
but, i figured, since rh7.3 had a gnome-session with sawfish as the
reigning window manager,there was no reason fedora 3 couldn't have the
same. i just don't know how to do it.
so, i soliciting suggestions.
