Can anyone reproduce the following Window Maker issue?

-----
WindowMaker issue:
Could not execute command: exec WPrefs

Reproducable on the following new full installs of 14RC1:
1. T60 laptop
2. VMware Wks 8 VM

Steps:

1. Launch WindowMaker
2. On blank part of the desktop, right click and select Configure Window Maker.

Result:

You should see an error window that says "Could not execute command: exec WPrefs"

It's as if the expectation is that WPrefs is in one of the paths.

Workaround for the current user:

1. Launch WPrefs from /usr/lib/GNUstep/Applications/WPrefs.app/WPrefs
2. Select Applications Menu Definition
3. Click on Configure Widnow Maker
4. Enter full path in Program to Run field

Yes, I've sent a patch to Pat which fixes this and the missing themes under the appearance menu.

You need a ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file to fix that.
Code:
gtk-theme-name = "Xfce-4.6"
gtk-icon-theme-name = "gnome"
In XFCE, xfsettingsd will set these values, if you're running thunar outside of XFCE then you need to set them yourself.

Can't reproduce that one. Works here.
Anything in your ~/.xsession-errors file to say why?

Did spot an error in the fvwm .xintirc though:

edit: oops got that wrong. lets try again.

Code:
if [ -z "$DESKTOP_SESSION" -a -x /usr/bin/ck-launch-session ]; then
  eval $(dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session)
  ck-launch-session /usr/bin/startfvwm2
else
  dbus-launch --exit-with-session /usr/bin/startfvwm2
fi
should be:
Code:
if [ -z "$DESKTOP_SESSION" -a -x /usr/bin/ck-launch-session ]; then
  ck-launch-session /usr/bin/startfvwm2
else
   /usr/bin/startfvwm2
fi

Both xgames and xscreensaver install a /usr/man/man6/maze.6.gz

edit: Both quota and glibc install
/usr/include/rpcsvc/rquota.{h,x}

as well as this: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...6/#post4736243

Nope, no .xsession-errors file on this end. Just .xsession and .xsession-backup . I do see a xauth: message saying .serverauth.3797 does not exist in my home directory.


Running Tail -100 against /var/log/Xorg.0.log isn't telling me much either (may need to increase the number of lines?)

There is a typo in the new 20-plugdev-group-mount-override.pkla file. The line:

Result=Active=yes

should be:

ResultActive=yes

I've already emailed Pat about this.

Same as GazL for me.

@GazL - Nice catch on the .xinitrc. I see the same.
