Just installed Gkrellum


or something similar it's a system monitor that attatches as a sidebar to your desktop, I installed it using the mdk9.1 rpm since that is the flavor I'm running. I have no clue where it put it or how to run it. I read through the site and the faq and I'm still confused. I'm a linux noob, so this is why I'm having problems.

hehe well lets put it this way, you said you installed gkrellm or something like it...so we don't even know what you have installed, so we don't know what to tell you, if it is gkrellm, just type gkrellm in the console and it will work if thats what you installed and post a link of what you installed.

Try the run dialog button and type into it

gkrellm

Or, open an x terminal and type

gkrellm

Or make a launcher for it

Or put it into your (console login) .xinitrc file or other x init file you use

Install the plugins and you may decide to use a window manager rather than a desktop environment.

Fluxbox!

Here is a window managers/desktop environments forum.

Basically, a wm is run from a menu accessed by a click on the desktop and is leaner/faster and a de has icons and quick launch panels and "eye candy".
