[wmx] checking for X... noLauren Commons
- Thu Aug 21 14:16:01 2003
Mornin' (here anyway).
First of all, I love wmx; I've used it of and on for
several years. I have a toshiba portege 3015 laptop
with a small screen, and the tabs on the side are a
great solution for maxmizing screen real estate. And
the old dog is a bit underpowered for more bloated
window manager/desktop managers.
But I have two questions.
1) In the readme it says that "wmx makes realtively
heavy demands on the performance of your X server..."
As I mentioned, my laptop is rather long in the tooth.
Is wmx really the best choice if one of the problems
I'm trying to solve is that I don't want the
performance hit of a more bloated system? I DO love
the simplicity of wmx, and would sacrifice some
performance for the spiritual calm I get from keeping
my display clean and simple ;-) Oh yeah, and virtual
desktops. Very valuable on a small laptop.
2) When I tried to run 'configure', I got the error
message in my subject line above. But I DO have X;
after all I am running KDE.
I have a pretty basic Redhat 8(?)installation; I am
clearly not an X programmer, so I'm not sure what
other info youmight need. I browsed the list archive
but didn't see anythign that looked quite like this
Any suggestions are welcome (well, with in reason).
