In that case I would lose the theme as well, since that is in a subdirectory of the ~/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep directory. Is there some way to remove AfterStep but leave the theme intact? >and then su to root and do >the RPM thing to install AS where it should be That's the problem. I don't know where AfterStep should be. I thought it should be where I had put it. >then you should have only one instance of AS around The version in /usr/X11R6/share/afterstep seems to remain, even after an rpm installation. I guess I could do rm -r /usr/X11R6/share/afterstep, but I don't dare do this until I know that I won't be causing even more trouble by doing so. >Then look for a .wm_style or a .xinitrc file in each users home directory >and if not there make a .xinitrc file and put the name of the wm you want >to run The .xinitrc file does not exist by default in Linux Mandrake. I have created such a file containing only the line "exec afterstep" for the first user in whose directory I installed AfterStep, and this works just fine, but it does not work for the other user for which I have done exactly the same. >for that user in there and you should be set >Then you can import your saved file to the home dr of your choice >Have fun > Thank you for your help. ______________________________________________________ Get Your Private, Free Email at http://www.hotmail.com -- This is the mailing list for the AfterStep Window Manager for X.
