    Gnome 2.2

    Hello all,
    Using HD installation of Knoppix 3.2. I have recently installed Gnome 2.2 however for some reason the window manager is not working. Can't max/min/close windows. Looking under Applications>System Tools>Configuration Editor and then Window Manager it tells me that the default window manager is in /usr/bin/sawfish. Not sure what I need to do to get this running. Any ideas most appreciated.

    Hello All,
    Please disregard, problem fixed. For information I used the following commands gleaned from a Google search which I should have done first off:
    killall sawfish; sleep 1;metacity
    Then when wm started did
    gnome-session-save
    Seems to have worked
