Troble with .Xsession script and MWM


I'm trying to use MWM as window manager. All seems ok: X-Window starts, mwm starts, but it never release the desktop. I mean, the mouse pointer is always with the busy sign, so I can access the menus.

As far as I know, the problem is in my xsession scrip, in this part:

# We may try with chksession
if [ -x /usr/sbin/chksession ];then
#get the first available
SESSION=$(/usr/sbin/chksession -F)
[ -n "$SESSION" -a "$SESSION" != Default ] && exec sh -c "$(/usr/sbin/chksession -x=$SESSION)"

I guess the problem is because mwm doesn't support multisessions, and maybe the script is waiting for something.

I'm not experienced enought to write my own script. Can some one suggest me one??

Thanks a lot

Your num lock isn't on is it? Take a look here
Note: A flaw in the programing cause the focus to become locked when the "Num Lock" button is active.
