Re: [OPEN] Idiosyncrasy of using Xfce desktop & Awesome WM

That is correct. Had a bit of a fight with the session manager regarding the xfce panel at first, but it's behaving itself in that regard now.

The bar is a wibox from Awesome.

[SOLVED] Idiosyncrasy of using Xfce desktop & Awesome WM

I've been playing with using Awesome as the WM in place of Xfwm... On the whole the results are very pleasing, but ... 1] it takes an awful long time for the desktop to appear after logon - there seems to be some sort of battle for control amongst the WMs! 2] I have dual monitors, with 5 'tags' (as ...

Re: [SOLVED] cadence refuses to autostart...

I'm afraid that didn't work either. I've been doing some reading around the problem, and it seems there are occasional problems of this nature with Cadence and LADISH on some set-ups - I'm afraid it all got a bit to technical for me to understand properly, but there did seem to be some hope of sorti...
