I'm running Gnome+XGL with Beryl, and trying to use Limewire. I have found that LimeWire must be started with "noXgl sh runLime.sh" or the inside of the window is just white. with that command I can see everything in the window, but it's got no title bar ( min,max,close ). Is there a way I can configure this one program to use a different window manager when it loads???

As of now it is stuck non-maximized right in the middle of my screen, can't maximize it, can't minimize it, and it stays there even when I rotate the cube.. Makes the program unusable unless that is the only thing I'm doing. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Sometimes this works for some Java-based programs and Beryl...

Edit the file named /etc/profile (as root) and insert the following line into it, save it, and reboot:


export AWT_TOOLKIT="MToolkit"
Hope that works for you ;)

Bah! My old age is catching up on me :(

OK... Locate this line in /etc/profile:

export PATH USER LOGNAME MAIL HOSTNAME HISTSIZE INPUTRC
And add the following changes:

AWT_TOOLKIT=`MToolkit`
export PATH USER LOGNAME MAIL HOSTNAME HISTSIZE INPUTRC AWT_TOOLKIT

Hope that works ;)

[edit: I'll just check that to be sure... Back in a moment :) ]

Oh yeah... Definitely old age :D

(But I don't use limewire as yet... So keep that in mind ;) )

Here's the one that should work:

OK... Locate this line in /etc/profile:

export PATH USER LOGNAME MAIL HOSTNAME HISTSIZE INPUTRC
And add the following changes:


AWT_TOOLKIT="MToolkit"
export PATH USER LOGNAME MAIL HOSTNAME HISTSIZE INPUTRC AWT_TOOLKIT

After you've rebooted, when you go to a bash prompt and type env, the line for AWT_TOOLKIT should show:
AWT_TOOLKIT=MToolkit
