Question Running Gnome and KDE Apps under Windowmaker


I recently installed Windowmaker WM .....I would like to run KDE and Gnome apps under this WM....I'm currently using FC1

They don't appear on the menu...to be specific ....I would like to run Kmahjonng , gnuchess , Streamtuner !! ...etc. under windowmaker

In the interest of making me look like some kind of wiz kid to my friends and family .....how do I do this ????


Thanks

Rob

3.15 How do I edit my root menu?

You can now use WPrefs.app ( its appicon looks like a heart rate meter with a GNUStep icon backgroud ). Note that this will replace any oldstyle menus and there is no way to convert the oldstyle menu to the new libproplist style menu.

For old style menus, edit the file

~/GNUstep/Library/WindowMaker/menu

and save your changes. Window Maker should detect the change and automatically update. If you are having a problem getting it to reload the menu, try

touch menu

to force the modification time into the future.
this didn't work?
