I have posted this question on Compiz forum and on XFCE forum. 36 views and 51 views respectively, not a single peep of a reply…,
I have also asked on IRC #compiz and #xfce…
If I run compix-switch or fusion-icon, and then select xfwm4 from its menu, it refuses to load, terminal gives me these errors:
* Setting window manager to Xfwm4 ** (xfwm4:6218): CRITICAL **: Xfconf could not be initialized ** (xfwm4:6218): WARNING **: Missing data from default files * Setting window manager to Xfwm4 ** (xfwm4:6230): CRITICAL **: Xfconf could not be initialized ** (xfwm4:6230): WARNING **: Missing data from default files
But if I now run “xfwm4 --replace &” from the terminal, it loads xfwm4 no problem.
(icewm works ok from the fusion-icon menu)
Where do I look for these problems? What exactly is the call that fusion-icon makes when I click a WM in the fusion-icon menu? And where is it?
Anyone point me in the right direction?
I wonder if a bash guru could make a grep type command, to find at least where the line (I guess might be???)
echo "missing data from default files"
occurs, and then maybe I could see what compiz-switch or fusion-icon were trying to do, mebbes looking in the wrong place?
