#341 fixed WINDOW_MANAGER isn't respected in Jaunty jdreed geofft

Reported by geofft, 15 years ago.


My .bash_environment contains in part:

add windowmanagers
export WINDOW_MANAGER=ratpoison

This suffices to get me ratpoison on -cluster and below on Intrepid (and on Athena 9), but not on Jaunty. I've also heard reports from others that WINDOW_MANAGER doesn't work for them.

Since it works on up-to-date Intrepid systems, this is something Ubuntu changed; we should figure out what it is and work around it.

#342 fixed Non-GNOME sessions' terminals are broken in Jaunty broder geofft

Reported by geofft, 15 years ago.


Essentially all non-GNOME sessions want you to start off with a terminal, which Debian makes sure is x-terminal-emulator, which is gnome-terminal. At some point between Intrepid and Jaunty, gnome-terminal started failing to launch if gnome-settings-daemon isn't running, rather than just launching with vaguely ugly default settings. This is pretty poor for the usability

We should figure out what's going on here, and work around it somehow, e.g.:

  • Figure out if there's a setting or environment variable to make the lack of gnome-settings-daemon noncritical, or to make it spawn if needed.
  • Start gnome-settings-daemon in every session.
  • Make the non-GNOME sessions use xterm instead.
#343 fixed debathena-larvnet does not uninstall cleanly quentin

Reported by quentin, 15 years ago.


After uninstalling the larvnet package, all logins fail with:

/usr/lib/debathena-larvnet/larvnet-wrapper: Command not found.

This is because there is a leftover /etc/X11/Xsession.d/96debathena-larvnet file that is not removed when removing the package.
