running WindowMaker on GNOME (or vice-versa)
I like my desktop (see screenshot). I currently run WindowMaker with the gnome-panel on top of it to get the gnome menu. I need to run WindowMaker because I like the dock/clip, and not all dockapps work with gnome-swallow-applet.
This solution works OK, but there's some duct-tape needed which makes me think I'm not running it correctly. For example:
* I need to manually run gnome-panel after starup (setting it to automatically run causes the panels to be incorrectly sized)
* I need to manually start gnome-keyring-daemon and export its magic environment vars to get it to store my ssh passwords for the current session.
* I need to manually run nautilus (again, running it on wmaker startup causes issues).
I've tried many things to allow me to start my gnome session (and thus automatically start all the interconnected stuff underneath it), but I can't figure out how to start WindowMaker after GNOME. So my questions are:
1) Should GNOME run on top of WindowMaker (my current setup), or vice-versa?
2) Can I configure GNOME to run WindowMaker instead of metacity as the window manager?
3) Is there a standard way to start the GNOME environment (panel, nautilus, etc.) from within another window manager?
