Can't configure stuff right for anything but root. And an easy X question
I'm using delilinux 0.5 which is basically slackware 7.1 minus most of the packages...anyways I can get it configed and tweaked pretty good but for somereason most of the stuff only applies to the root account. For instance the default window manager was twm (gagH!) so i ran xwmconfig and switched it to icewm (as root). I logged in on my normal user account and still its twm. I tried to run xwmconfig on my normal user account but i had to use su to execute it and it still only applied to root...i keep screwing up my system logged in as root i need to protect myself from me lol. Any ideas?
Also when i run xf86config i set the only resolution for 16 bit color to be 800 x 600 (or vice versa i can never remmeber which number is first) and i know my monitor and vid card can support it as i've done it in windows 98 before (ick). But when I boot with
startx -- -bpp 16
it won't run unless i enable a lower resolution???any more ideas? lol thanks in advance
