Ma7fouz,

Please don't hi-jack other peoples threads w/ completely unrelated
questions; that's very poor etiquette. I took the liberty to split
your three posts and one response out of the other thread, and politely
ask that you don't do this again.



Cheers,
Tink

The program that draws frames around windows in GNOME and lets you move/resize them.

Your GNOME desktop will be basically unusable without it.
