I try to configure afterstep 2 beta 4b:

1- I want to use some feels from version 1.8 (autoraise), is it possible?=
how could I do? I tried to copy this autoraise file in a directory feels =
in my
~/.afterstep, but it is not very stable.

2- I want to get rid of new windows sticked to the mouse pointer every ti=
me you
open a new one: it is very tiresome with popup from internet sites!

3- I want to use my images for the background: shall I add a symbolic lin=
k in
the directory "background" of afterstep configuration directory?

4- I want to use "gnome-panel" instead of wharf: it works but, at startup=
, the
panel is randomly put anywhere on the desktop, whatever its defined posit=
ion in
the preference, and the first use of a "drawer" in this panel launch the =
in the middle of the desktop!

About Gnome: it seems that a Gnome module exists in the sources of afters=
but it is not compiled when you compile afterstep itself. I tried to use =
the syntax:

./configure --with-Gnome=3Dyes

configure doesn't protest, but nothing is done!

5- It seems to be impossible to start a xterm in iconic mode.

6- I use aterm but it is impossible to get UTF-8 characters with it and a=
term is
unable to handle talk calls.

Thank you for any answers
