Windows Managers

Unread postby directedition » Sun Feb 16, 2003 12:06 pm

Can someone tell me how to change the default window manager? Say I want to use Blackbox or Enlightenment instead of 4DWm.

Tip: don't ever do this for root, or deny all remote access to your machine, because you might render your X serssion useless, without an easy opportunity to fix it :(
It's no fun when you need to go to miniroot, just because your cool Enlightenment desktop is unable to initialize itself.
Besides, you miss out all the 4Dwm stuff :
