windowmaker help
is there a program that puts a "desktop" in window maker ? i want things like floppy access, cd rom access, shortcuts to programs, etc...

i tried rox, but i get some weird libpng error.

also, how do i get a dock applet to autostart at windowmaker startup ? i downloaded a few, and i know how to start them from a terminal, but how do i get them to start at boot time ?

run the dock applet and drag it to the dock on the top right of the screen.

to star the app, i go to a xterm and type in wmdockapmmname, and it'll start. so all i do it take the DOCK APP (not the terminal icon) and move it to the dock ?

No, no, no!!!! Thats not what he means.... he wants something like a desktop in Gnome or KDE. You can install Nautilus :) It's from Gnome and it makes a desktop but Nautilus isn't really too fast.

I was only answering his other question, I have an empty desktop so I don't have an answer.

yes, drag the dock app(not terminal) to the bottom of the dock and it'll click into place and ask you a question about running it on startup or something.

u can view your desktop or create symlinks to cd floppy etc. with konqueror.

window maker has it all over fuxbox. wm is so simple,clean and fast... but yet not too tedious. I dnot like editing a file to create menus and stuff like that.

Now, if i could figure anti-aliasing out for window maker, i would be happier...
