Hi, I've been playing with linux on my secondary system and have tried my darndest to resolve some issues on my own but can't figure them out. I am using Red Hat 9
Be prepared to laugh at the 'newb-oscity' of my questions
1.) I am using enlightenment as a WM and am able to get it to start up automatically when i log in. But it doesn't seem to be starting Gnome automatically. When I am in E, and use the menu to browse my home folder, Gnome loads and I lose my background from E, but E is still loaded (I assume so by the pagers at the bottom). How do i get Gnome to load with E. I've tried the xinitrc, Xsession, etc... but i seem to have to use a gnome option to activate gnome (its not a biggie, just tryin to make it a bit easier)........Do i even need Gnome to load?
2.) I have installed and am able to use Eterm. How do I get Eterm to show colors when using the 'ls' command without have to type 'ls --color' everytime. 'ls' with color shows with Xterm but not Eterm...I couldn't find where to set it in any config files
3.) Another terminal question..... How do i initiate a program from a terminal but retain the use of that terminal session. Lets say i want to start Mozilla, In my eterm, I type 'mozilla' and it loads, but if i want to use the terminal again, I have to cntrl-z or close mozilla...cntrl-z is fine to a point, but lets say its a program that i don't want to halt...like a messenger or a monitor....do i just have to iconify the term being 'used' and open another?
Thanks for your time
