view full story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hello, Wanted to use really minimal gnome desktop environment so installed only metacity and gnome-panel( v2.20.3). And it woks fine on my debian box. I have the following gnome-panel( v2.16.1) problem on my Centos box: If I start gnome-panel from xterm using command "gnome-panel &" it works fine. But if I put it in X clients file like .Xclients or .xsession: Code: # cat .Xclients xclock -geometry 110x110-0+0 & xterm -geometry 80x25+0+0 & gnome-panel & metacity then gnome-panel fails to start its "Window List" and "Show Desktop" applets: C (HowTos)
