Install of Metacity theme causes GNOME 2.2 to hang at start-up and errors with Gaim
Okay, I installed the Metacity theme 2.4.55 for GNOME 2.2 today, and the compilation seemed to go well. I couldn't figure out how to set it up, so I reboot to see if I had to restart x in order to get it to work. However, upon starting GNOME, it just hangs at the starting xwindows icon on the greeter, then the screen turns black and I have to reboot.
Metacity doesn't even look very good, and I don't want to go through the trouble of trying to get it to work, so I'll stick with Fluxbox and the occasional KDE for my glam fix. I want to remove Metacity and hope it fixes the problems. Do I simply delete its directory or do I have to edit gnome's configuration as well?
P.S. I doubt it matters, but I use Slackware 9 with kernel 2.4.21.
