Help with Desktop environment
Hello Everyone -
I am a linux newbie here running Fedora Core 4.
This is the distribution that I am running if it matters:
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 #1 Thu Jun 2 22:55:56 EDT 2005 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux
Here are my basic questions:
1. I *thought * I had installed everything from the CD. When I boot, the window manager (desktop manager?) is really crappy. I mean, it is like a clock and then a terminal. The resolution is 800x600 I think. How do I change this to something "cool" looking? I've heard of "GNOME" and "KDE" and I even went as far as to check out my /etc/sysconfig/desktop file, but there is no file. Should I create one? How do I change the resolution?
2. How do I *tell* which options I have for window managers? I mean, how do I know if I've really installed "GNOME" and "KDE"?
3. How do I know (command line?) which window manager I am running. It just shows a terminal and a clock and all of the options are when I right click. I had hoped it would at least resemble windows. I've seen some redhat stuff that had a start button and cool icons. How come mine looks bad?
