I do not know, how 'metacity' is supposed to look,
but the command 'metacity &' will start something.
WindowMaker = wmaker, type wmaker
To choose an other wm, suggest :
sudo apt-get install icewm blackbox fvwm jwm
( You must have some to choose from, they are all very small ).
Type icewm to start ..... then 'icewm' has a
menu with the others :
> > Menu > System > Window Managers
If you ever have a problem with leaving a window manager,
<Ctrl> <Alt> <Backspace> can be used.
