I am running RedHat 9.0
I am trying to install and successfully run Window Maker, but I am having a few problems.
I performed the install as root and I ran wmaker.inst, which is supposed to configure everything for me, but it hasn't worked. When I reboot and log in (visually) I got an error and had to select Gnome from the menu at the bottom of the screen.
I edited my /etc/sysconfig/desktop file so that when my Xclients file(?) is run it assumes that my preferred desktop is wmaker.
When I try to run Window Maker in a Gnome desktop I get the following error:
[thedude@localhost /]$ RunWM
WARNING: You selected WindowMaker as your window manager, but your
installation of WindowMaker does not appear to be functional. Either
/usr/bin/wmaker was not found or /usr/share/WindowMaker directory
RESUMING with Fvwm2 (95 look)
WARNING: You selected Fvwm2 as your window manager, but your installation

Because of this I have copied the wmaker file from its originally assigned /usr/bin/local/ directory and I will try to reboot to see if this works. Additionally, I dont have a /usr/share/WindowMaker directory because one wasnt created that way. Rather I have a /usr/local/share/WindowMaker directory. Should I just move all that stuff? How did this install so...poorly?
Finally, when I initially configured, made, and made install I did not follow up by running ldconfig. Could this be the problem? I tried to run it, but I don't have that option installed apparently. I guess I will try to install that too and then go back through the entire installation to see if that helps anything change.
Anyway, Ive been reading over the net for hours and I still can't seem to get this working. I guess I've been learning something though...just not sure what yet
If you can give me any suggestions, I would appreciate it.
