I installed Sawfish(with sudo apt-get install sawfish) but it's not

buttons simultaneously, but nothing happened.

I've already read the Sawfish FAQ and user guide, and I've already
searched the Web, but I still cannot solve this problem.  I have also
tried to change a mouse, but it didn't make sense.

for your consideration.

Sawfish packages in Ubuntu are ancient (1.5.3, while 1.9.1 is the latest
stable version). It might aswell be that they are packaging wrong version of
rep-gtk with it (Debian once had this problem).

The best choice is to download the sources and install on your own, see:


Can I compile it from GIT?
