[Sawfish] installing sawfish in xubuntu

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More lists.tuxfamily.org/sawfish Archives ]

i installed sawfish in xubuntu 1204 with the "software Center" (this
only has sawfish 1:1.5.3-2build1)

Then set the .xinitrc as suggested by Robert to:


xscreensaver -no-splash &
sawfish &
exec ck-launch-session dbus-launch xfce4-session

i the put the "hello world app suggested by Chris in


to wit:

(defvar-setq top-left-corner-function
(lambda () (display-message "hello world")))

But when i chose sawfish in my logon i got just a background pic ...
no key combo did anything and the "hello world" app did not perform.

Not even Alt-F1 worked. i had to do a power cycle to get the machines
attention back.
