Re: [wmx] more gnome stuff

good point.

umm. it seems to me that a config.h option would be possible. (to have
both standard gnome and what you described)

i never use gmc (well, that's a lie, i have a few icons on the desktop
that i double click, but i never move or delete them). matter of fact
i never use any of the menus (wmx or gnome), although it's nice to
have the "new" option when everything crashes and no xterms are left

someone want to write the patch? if not i'll get to it later in the

took a quick look at gtk+ programming and decided that it's not
something i want to dedicate cycles to.
