Thank you, this fixed my Enlightenment always starting problem.
I still have to start wmx in my .xsession before gnome-session runs.
Otherwise the pager-applet in the panel complains that there is no
gnome-compliant window manager available and quits.
If I say that wmx is the window-manager in the gnome config it doesn't get
started. If I select the wm is session-managed button there then it still
doesn't get started. Should I be setting CONFIG_USE_SESSION_MANAGER to
TRUE in Config.h?
If I start wmx in the start-programs panel then if I give it priority 0
then it starts, but not in time - the pager errors off. If I give it
priority -1 (which should start it before everything else) then nothing
starts and one is glad that one has ctrl-alt-bksp enabled in the xserver.
Although it all works if my .xsession does:
I should, I think, be able to just have 'gnome-session' in there and it
would be nice if it was working as it should.
