Thread: Windows Mgr Problem?

  1. Windows Mgr Problem?

    Upon removing Beryl, my Ubuntu/Gnome and Kubuntu/KDE windows have lost
    their borders, are "stuck" in one position (usually upper left), and have
    no control buttons on the upper right of the window.

    I also have no multiple desktops.

    IceWM seems to run fine, but neither desktop works.

    I have tried "dpkg-reconfigure gnome", "dpkg-reconfigure gdm" - neither
    seems to have had an effect. I've removed and reinstalled Gnome from the
    Synaptic package manager (desperation!), to no avail.

    My guess is that an underlying windows manager got hosed on the Beryl
    removal - but if Gnome uses Sawfish, and KDE uses kdm, why would they both
    be broken?

    There are some suspicious entries in .xsession-errors:

    Gnome-Message: gnome_execute_async_with_env_fds: returning -1
    Gnome-Message: gnome_execute_async_with_env_fds: returning -1

    Using Ubuntu 7.04 Beta and I installed and uninstalled Beryl yesterday and
    it did the same thing, but once I'd done a restart I got everything back
    again. Don't know what caused it?
