IGLOO on WMs other than 4dwm?

Unread postby bigendian » Wed Jul 30, 2003 11:24 pm

I've got a dual head octane (SSI+SI) and I got frustrated by 4dwm on the dual head so I went with blackbox. When I did this, Jot, toolchest and a number of other apps stopped working. I've been told this is because they are IRISGL apps and that my IGLOO environment isn't setup right but I can't find the variable I need to set. Anybody have any ideas?

Hi, I could never get blackbox WM to work with toolchest.

I have use Gnome with sawfish window manager (both work well together) and are available on sgi's freeware site.

Using other WM in replacement of 4dwm don't seem to work well, unless you change the desktop enviroment. ie Gnome or maybe KDE.

Personaly I fine the SGI desktop works just fine.
