Gobi7: Day 22: Desktop Manager Battle

22 days on th Gobi7 and still going. Not much new to report. The main issue that I have run into is around which window manager is running. I lost my session due to a scheduled power outage at the campus I am connected to and had to log into a new session. When I logged in I was not paying attention and JDS pulled up instead of what I generally use. I found that the antialiasing of fonts where driving me nuts on the 12" screen so logged back out and then back in with my FVWM session. Ah, back to my comfort zone windows manager. So I don't know if I was just seeing things or if I just needed to spend some time tweaking up the JDS settings. I found that way back in the day when I was beta testing SR@H (sun ray at home) that FVWM worked tons better than gnome, there were some screen refresh issues in the gnome code base back then that have since been resolved. FVWM is nice and lightweight, highly customizable and quick to configure as needed. I keep thinking that I should really out enlightenment but just have not found the time.

For what it's worth.

Does that mean you don't know about Launch - Applications - Utilities - Self Support where one can tinker around with font antialiasing? ;-)
