X Programs Missing

I just installed Windowmaker and thought I'd play around with it. However, it has many X programs on the menu and none of them are installed i.e. xcalc, xterm, x calendar... all sorts of X programs and none of them show up when I search for X with urpmi. How do I get all these nifty X things?

with Mandrake (according to your sig), or really any distro, most of those applications should be available on your installation CD(s).
How are you searching for "X"? with a capital "X"?
Try "which xcalc" or "type -p xcalc"

I searched for xcalc and got no search results. Windowmaker isn't working right anyway, it doesn't want to launch a lot of things and icons wont stay docked; well several things aren't working so for now I'll stick to blackbox. I've always liked the elegant simplicity of BB.

Thanks for the reply and have a great day.
