I want to change my window manager to sawfish from metacity as it is in the updated version of Nova. I'm not sure how to go about doing this. I found a little clue in the GConf editor but there are no defaults for sawfish that I can really run with. There isn't a graphical way to do this. And i'm lost in documentation from Gnome and Sawfish's websites. Please help.
If you have sawfish installed and you're in Gnome, open a terminal and type this:
killall metacity && exec sawfish &
That should do the trick.
