Thread: openSUSE 11.1 / gnome and no window decorations

    Default openSUSE 11.1 / gnome and no window decorations


    ... and apart from missing window decorations,
    I cannot select windows, and I can't type into them and so forth.

    I also don't see "metacity" on the process list any more.

    What's going on?

    Obviously you resp. I can't work like that.
    Luckily enough I got used to do experiments like that on machines, that
    are not my main desktop machines.

    Try alt+f2 and enter *metacity --replace*
    If you installed compiz-fusion recently.. that's most likely the cause,
    and if you got emerald installed you might want to use emerald --replace
    instead (in the same dialog)

    Oh, how bad!
    F2 is on the keyboard,
    and the keyboard is inactive wrt. this.

    The window manager actually does allow me
    to type into yast's search field though.
    So it's not that the keyboard is completely unfunctional.

    So I am a little stuck.

    Well, right now a complete fresh install is not an option regarding
    this box.
