Lärs Posted July 6, 2005 Report Share Posted July 6, 2005 (edited) Ok, so the deal is, I installed a WM from source (namely AfterStep) and it installed successfully. Now what I'm looking at is the way to get it on the Mandrake Session Manager. I tried booting to init 3 and running afterstep from the commandline, to no avail. I've also tried other window managers under the commandline as well. Apparently they give me something along the lines of the following: Afterstep cannot use X on "" . Now aborting. I've also tried adding an AfterStep file to /etc/X11/wmsession.d/ that coincided with the other WM files, and that didn't go by well. Is there another way I can get Afterstep on my MDKKDM Session Manager? I've heard something about a utility called kcontrol, please tell me if using it is the right way to go. Thank you.  I was looking at other entries and found startx afterstep would be the way to go under the CLI. I'll see if using KControl resolves the umm... session manager list.
