I copied all the xfce*.rpm files from CD4 to a directory and did an rpm
-Uvh *.rpm to install XFce. It installed fine and it now appears in the
However, when I run it, I get a message window that says:
"Your window manager does not seem to support the new window manager
hints as defined on http:/www.freedesktop.org. Some XFce features may
not work as intended."
When I close it, the panels appear but I have a continuous hourglass
cursor. The cursor will open windows when clicking on icons, but
obviously I'm missing something.
Any hints will be appreciated.
