Ok ok- I am one of these newbies that is getting knee deep in the Linux world. I figure the only way to learn something is to screw it up half a million times.
I am currently running Debian Sarge and love it. After looking into themes, I noticed that alot of what I want to use are not for Metacity. I looked at Enlightenment and have it "halfway running" on my PC.
I am having problems with getting it to be the default window manager. In Enlightenment it was telling me of a file I need to edit to fix this. It was:
Now, I have looked for this and cannot seem to turn up anything.
I guess another issue would be this- When I run Enlightenment, I have no menu's. I understand that the menus all pull up with the 3 mouse buttons, but I have seen people screen shots that are running Enlightenment and they have the Gnome "looking" menus at the top. Is there anyway to create that?
I am having a good time learning all of this. I am deployed in Iraq and do this when we are not running missions. I have been using Linux for the last 2 or so months and will not go back to Windows. I love this program and am trying to find more time to learn everything about it. Any help you can give me about these problems would be great.
