using WindowMaker instead of twm

2003-01-30 Thread Quan Ding
I just downloaded and installed Cygwin. The default window manager : twm doesn't provide many functionality and it's hard to use. I don't even know how to change the windows size. (i'm a newbie). I found that there is wmaker.exe in X11R6/bin. So I replaced that with twm in the startxwin.sh file.
