Re: How can I set the sawfish as the default window manager on fedora13

The way I used sawfish as the window manager was to use it without running gnome. I'm not sure that that's what you want but what I did was write the file .xinitrc in my home directory with the following contents:

#!/bin/sh
xterm
exec sawfish

I changed the runlevel in /etc/inittab from 5 to 3.

Then when I boot up and log in on the terminal I type in the command xinit. That way I get one xterm and sawfish as my window manager. This way there is no gnome desktop. Ben.

Good to hear that it worked for you. I'm sorry I can't help with the win key, but others will know. I think perhaps starting a new thread on that particular issue with a clear subject would be likely to attract the key experts to the problem. Ben.
