Ok, i unninstalled the rest of Xwindows and downloaded the Xfree86.....but now i have some trouble configuring it.....how do i select the deafult window manager? Like Gnome, Fluxbox or kDE?
Thank you all for your replys....well, here's what i did:
I insalled the XFree86 Xwindows system, so the xwmconfig command dosen't work now, i edited the .xintric file and tested some of the windows managers already installed: some worked, some didn't, so i decided to download and install KDE, i did it, but i think i missed somethink because the startkde command dosen't work....
Mor_gath, what windows manager do you have and how did you configure it?
well, i managed to fix it! i Configured the XFree86 to suit my monitor and video card and i now run gnome.....thanx, u were very helpfull!
Now, although for me, gnome is much like any other windows manager, you could point me to another that you think is better !
its really what "you" think is better. its really trial and error. fluxbox is fast, not hard to configure, kde is very easy and i like it alot better than gnome. most noobs run kde or gnome. when you get more of the hang of it and you want more speed, compile fluxbox. some distros even come with it as well, sometimes it will be blackbox instead(similar)
