Hi,

Since last week I'm working on woof (well, it cannot be called playin' with woof anymore at this stage). I've done a few things succesfully and even built a barebone jwm/rox so I know the whole stuff rocks, and I can add any software I like it's ok. but now I want to go further and I'm stuck on the following issues. My builds are ubuntu compatible. precise repos. I want to change the desktop and that my iso direct boot into KDE. As I understand, I asked for download the KDE packs from ubuntu, but now what ?

I also tried another build, with getting the Trinity desktop from external repos (I mean out from ubuntu repos). It seems to download ok, build ok, still the iso boots into jwm ... Embarassed

So far I don't know what I have done wrong and how to correct... I hope someone can help. Thanks.

Hi.

I'm not really familar with woof - did just try a build once. But I've encountered a similar problem when trying to load e17 WM from SFS at boot up and wanted to boot directly into the e17 WM.

After some search I found a solution, that works for me.

I've added a file to /etc ---> windowmanager.e17 which contains the command to start e17: enlightenment_start.

Then I've changed the code in xwin (near the beginning of the xwin script) from this here:

Code:
#0.9.9 enables to start a specific w.m. from commandline...
if [ $1 ];then
 echo -n "$1" > /etc/windowmanager
 #note, /root/.xinitrc uses this file.
fi

if [ -f /etc/windowmanager.openbox ]; then
mv -f /etc/windowmanager.openbox /etc/windowmanager
fi

to this here:
Code:
#0.9.9 enables to start a specific w.m. from commandline...
if [ $1 ];then   
   #note, /root/.xinitrc uses this file.
   echo -n "$1" > /etc/windowmanager
   else
   if [ -f /etc/windowmanager.e17 ]; then
      mv -f /etc/windowmanager.e17 /etc/windowmanager
      rm -f /etc/windowmanager.openbox
      else
      if [ -f /etc/windowmanager.openbox ]; then
         mv -f /etc/windowmanager.openbox /etc/windowmanager
         rm -f /etc/windowmanager.e17
      fi
   fi
fi

Now it works as I intend it to be.

Greetings

RSH
