    Default Problem with window manager


    Just installed the 11.1 DVD Gnome version today. Had an immediate
    problem with whatever window manager was installed. By this I mean no
    window border controls and spinning cursor. After thinking about it for
    a bit I went to the repositories and installed metacity. Then from the
    terminal I ran "metacity replace". Got what I wanted. However, I also
    got the following in the terminal:~$ metacity replace

    Window manager warning: Buggy client sent a _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW message
    with a timestamp of 0 for 0x3000003 (Starting t)

    Window manager warning: meta_window_activate called by a pager with a 0
    timestamp; the pager needs to be fixed.

    Window manager warning: Buggy client sent a _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW message
    with a timestamp of 0 for 0x3000003 (Software M)

    Window manager warning: meta_window_activate called by a pager with a 0
    timestamp; the pager needs to be fixed.


    I'm new to OpenSuse so I'm not sure exactly what this means. If I
    close the terminal then I lose metacity In other words it is not
    persistent.

    I would really appreciate your assistance. I'm trying really hard here
    to remove myself from Ubuntu.

    Had previously backed up home files on external hard drive so I went
    back and formatted /home on my computer to remove any conflicting config
    files. To those who at least looked, thank you.
