Question Windows Manager in RedHat 9.0


I was wondering, how do I find out which Windows Manager I am running on my machine. I tried "Help" but all it says is how to install it...

I would like to try different wm, but have no clue what I need to do for that. Is installing a new wm enough, or do I need to change settings somewhere?

yeah, i am using GNOME desktop environment, but I cannot find what wm is running, because under GNOME i can run twm, or sawfish, or enlightenment, etc...

you can or can't

anyways I think it's meta city

But if you mean you "I installed a wm" but can't use it, you have to edit your /boot/grub/grub.conf ( I don't know how ) but I do know apt does it for you (install & edit grub)
