Re: using WindowMaker instead of twm

 So how do I use windowmaker instead of twm?

/usr/X11R6/bin/wmaker.inst
/usr/X11R6/bin/wmchlocale de # change this to your locale
startx

 (or does cygwin come with any other better window manager?)

Windowmaker is allright.

Be sure that your $HOME variable is not set to the default windows location,
but set it to e.g. c:\cygwin\home\yourname. wmaker has a problem with
c:\Documents and Settings\

 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.
 But when I tried to run it. WindowMaker couldn't
 start, crashed all the time.

 So how do I use windowmaker instead of twm? (or does
 cygwin come with any other better window manager?)
