Metacity Window Manager <<>> Help!
Cant seem to get metacity to work!!!
Heres what i've set up so far.
My .Xclients-default file reads
This is pretty mind boggling to me.
I have executes metacity --replace (which is said to change your current window manager into metacity - as long as the process is running) but it doesn't appear to do anything except make all my windows blink and stuff then it looks like it did before I executed the command.
if you are using gnome desktop manager (gdm) to logon, you may be bypassing the startx scripts entirely.
Then, try logging into a virtual terminal and running startx.
You can always bring gdm back up
if that doesn't help any.
what about choosing failsafe from gdm and then typing in metacity, does that work?

As you cannot copy and paste in failsafe to my knowledge, I had to type the error out as best as i remember in pico
Here it is:
Window manager warning failed to open connection to as session manager, so window positions will not be saved: SESSION_MANAGER enviroment variable not defined
