New to linux, need help with window manger


I just downloaded enlightenment wm and I think I got it all installed but I have no clue where to find the .xsession or .xinitrc to get it going for all the users. I'm using fedora2.

MANUAL

Ive looked at the README, the INSTALL, and i guess i got enlightment installed because i can read the man pages.
it tells some what to do but not where to locate the files. Im pretty lost on what i need to next. I get what i kind of have to do but not really. All i know is it has to do with .xsession or .xinitrc and if i could get to that i think i could do more.

.xsession and .xinitrc are hidden files, denoted by the "." in front of the x. open a file manager like konqueror and choose "view" and "show hidden files"

*edit: i've never used fedora, so i'm not sure, but you might have to create the .xsession file for each user in their home directory.
