[wmx] A newbie wants to know !

Niels Rasmussen - Sat May 29 21:24:08 1999

Hi all !

At last, at last, at last!!

Finally my search is over, this WM is just what I have been searching
for, ever since I screwed my head off and joined the Linux-gang.

How simple it is ! It just have all the features I need (no one
mentioned, no one forgotten) ;-)
Anyway as you pointed out on your homepage, all that iconstuff is all 
unnecessary you never get it right anyway (so true, so true!!)

I have tried them all believe me, and it irritates me when I see that my
Xload is about to explode ;-)

Right now when I am writing this message in emacs my Xload is all blank

Anyway, I am a Newbie from the rotten state of Denmark (forgive me my
rotten english ;-)) and I have some stupid question that I hope to get
answered in this WMX-sphere:

# Where are my config.h file (i got my version, 3-1 November 1997, of
WMX on sunsite rpm-repository) the only config.h I have, dont have the
features that are mentioned in the README-file ??

# When will the next rpm-release be available ? (soon i hope)

# I am getting dizzy with the default gray background, how can I change
it to f.e black or blue (or maybe a sunset over Copenhagen ;-))

# The geometry characters dont fit to my screen, I have Xload loaded via
.xinitrc and have it placed in the lower right corner but it took me 3 
attempt to have it placed correctly (about 10 pixels from what was
informed on screen!) How can I adjust that ? (my screen is 17")  

# I know this is too much to ask you guys, but I dont have the slightest
idea of how to compile or recompile ??
Is it at all possible to get a step by step guide of how to compile
and/or recompile the newest version of WMX (in case that the next
rpm-version is a millenium-phenomenon ??) or to compile in generally, if
it is possible I would throw myself in the dust in deep gratitude!!!!!!!

Please note that I am not a programmer, so please explain it for me in a 
lowlevel lanuage ;-)

Greetings from DK

And thanks for WMX!

BTW I was looking at your screenshot on WMX's homepage and i was
wondering, how did you make emacs looke like that ?? which version do
you use ??
