hello ppl,

I have recently switched over to

Quote:> uname -a

SunOS lds007 5.5.1 Generic_103640-26 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-Enterprise

which has CDE (common desktop environment). The window manager I have to
use is OpenLook.

That looks ok except I can't seem to be able to get the windows to
autoraise. I really really NEEED that!!!! Please help!!!!

My .OWdefaults file has:
OpenWindows.DataForeground:     #ffffff
OpenWindows.WorkspaceColor:     #c7ceba
OpenWindows.PaintWorkspace:     True
OpenWindows.WorkspaceStyle:     paintcolor
OpenWindows.WorkspaceBitmapBg:  #c7ceba
OpenWindows.DataBackground:     #000000
OpenWindows.AutoRaise (true)
OpenWindows.AutoRaiseDelay (5000)

I added the last two lines myself - the others were automatically
generated. But that does not seem to help.

If there some other file I need to put this in or do I have the syntax
wrong?

PLEASE HELP!

TIA,

-=Akhtar=-

I haven't used Openlook in a years, but just looking at the code you
supplied, I would guess that your lines should read

        OpenWindows.Autoraise:          True
        OpenWindows.AutoRaiseDelay:     5000

Ppl

I tried this in my .OWdefaults file

OpenWindows.AutoRaise: True
OpenWindows.AutoRaiseDelay: 5000

but still no joy...

Is the syntax different in different versions of OpenLook?
Do I need to switch on focus follows mouse or something? I dont know
much about this wm.

TIA,

Regards,

PS man in olwm says:
     AutoRaise (boolean)
          Raise  windows  automatically  when  they  receive  the
          focus.   This is useful in click-to-focus if you always
          like to type into the topmost window.  This  is  useful
          in  focus-follow-mouse when the AutoRaiseDelay resource
          is set to a reasonable value.  Default value: false.

     AutoRaiseDelay (integer)
          Amount of time to delay,  in  microseconds,  between  a
          window  receiving  the focus and raising it above other
          windows.   Effective  only  when  the  value   of   the
          AutoRaise resource is true.  Default value: 0.

1. OpenLook window manager setup

I'm trying to setup the OpenLook windows manager with the Debian 1.2
distribution (which uses XFree86 3.2).  However, when I activate the
"olwm" line in the /etc/X11/window-managers file and then try to login,
it won't work (I get the login prompt again).  I've discovered that it
creates a .xsession-errors file, which stated that it couldn't find
the libolgx.so.3 file.  I've got the X libraries in my LD_LIBRARY_PATH
set in csh.login, so I don't know why it doesn't work.  I even tried
setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH inside of /etc/X11/Xsession, but that didn't
work either.  Any ideas on what I need to do?
