Is it possible to replace metacity with xfce window manager (don't know it's name)? I don't want to run xfce session, I need only xfce window manager running on gnome fallback.
My window manager seems to have broke (xfce). I don't see windows around borders, the mouse doesn't display, and i cannot open the "window manager" settings from the menu (the xorg text tty says my window manager is unknown). The panel still loads but doesn't display my desktops correctly (only shows 1, i have 2). How can i find out why this might have happened?
I've a problem with running an xfce session on a desktop computer. All window decorations are gone, in the settings manager I can't change the settings of the window manager (clicking on window manager gives me an empty screen, with just the return, help and close buttons). In firefox the menu's are unusable.
Im running #!Statler XFCE, was trying out different window-manager-styles (ie, xfce4-settings-manager -> window-decorations (mine is in swedish tho so I might not have gotten the eng name right, just guessing)), and when i picked one of them X crashed and threw me to gdm login. When I try to login as usual (Xsession), I get instantly kicked out again.
I normally enjoy using Gnome 3 and gnome-shell in Fedora 16. However, I would like to temporarily run a non-compositing window manager such as metacity so that some wine games can have full control of the display.
