+
+Window Maker 0.80.2
+===================
+
+This hint is originally written by Corbin Bates <dracolinux at softhome.net>.
+Now updated and maintained by Daniel Baumann.
+
+
+1. Introduction to Window Maker
+===============================
+
+Window Maker is an X11 window manager designed to give additional integration
+support to the GNUstep Desktop Environment. In every way possible, it reproduces
+the elegant look and feel of the NeXTSTEP GUI. It is fast, feature rich, easy to
+configure, and easy to use. In addition, Window Maker works with GNOME and KDE,
+making it one of the most useful and universal window managers available.
+
+
+1.1. Package information
+========================
+
+  * Download (HTTP): http://www.windowmaker.org/pub/source/release/WindowMaker-0.80.2.tar.bz2
+
+  * Download (FTP): ftp://ftp.windowmaker.org/pub/source/release/WindowMaker-0.80.2.tar.bz2
+
+  * MD5 Sum: 9f4fabc8831af6c58edf8708ee90126f
+
+  * Download size: 2.1 MB
+
+  * Estimated Disk space required: 59 MB
+
+  * Estimated build time: 0.57 SBU
+
+
+1.2. Additional downloads
+=========================
+
+Optional:
+
+  * Window Maker extra package
+
+    This is the extra data package for Window Maker. It contains some icons and
+    a few themes.
+
+    Download: http://www.windowmaker.org/pub/source/release/WindowMaker-extra-0.1.tar.gz
+
+
+  * Clip-caption patch
+
+    Aesthetical change to the Window Maker clip. The workspace number is now in
+    the lower right corner, the workspace name in the upper left. The workspace
+    name will be truncated using an ellipsis if it is too long.
+    Fixes inconsistent popup 'balloon'. The clip now uses the same balloon as
+    other appicons/miniwindows/etc.
+
+    Download: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/patches/downloads/WindowMaker/WindowMaker-0.80.2-clip-captions.patch
+
+
+  * Workspace-number patch
+
+    Makes workspace numbering by the wmsetbg tool start at 1 instead of 0, just
+    like it does for the rest of Window Maker.
+
+    Download: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/patches/downloads/WindowMaker/WindowMaker-0.80.2-wmsetbg-workspace-number.patch
+
+
+  * Optional preference-directory patch
+
+    Changes the preference directory from ~/GNUstep to ~/.GNUstep.
+
+    Note:	Set --datadir=~/.GNUstep/Library and
+    		--with-iconsdir=~/.GNUstep/Library/Icons on installing other
+		GNUstep applications.
+
+    Download: http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/patches/downloads/WindowMaker/WindowMaker-0.80.2-preference-directory-2.patch
+
+
+1.3. Window Maker dependencies
+==============================
+
+Required:
+
+  * X Window System (see BLFS for instructions)
+
+  * libpng (see BLFS for instructions)
+
+
+Optional:
+
+  * libXPM
+  
+    There is builtin support for XPM files, but it will not load images in some
+    uncommon encodings.
+
+
+  * libtiff
+
+  * libjpeg
+  
+  * libgif or libungif
+  
+  * libHermes
+  
+    Faster pixel conversion in the wraster library.
+
+
+2. Installation of GQview
+
+
+2. Installation of Window Maker
+===============================
+
+Install Window Maker by running the following commands:
+
+	# patch -Np1 -i ../WindowMaker-0.80.2-clip-captions.patch &&
+	# patch -Np1 -i ../WindowMaker-0.80.2-wmsetbg-workspace-number.patch &&
+	# patch -Np1 -i ../WindowMaker-0.80.2-preference-directory-2.patch &&
+
+	# ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc &&
+	# make &&
+	# make install &&
+
+	Note:	If you want to strip the debugging symbols from the binaries and
+		make them smaller, you can type 'make install-strip &&' instead.
+
+	# /sbin/ldconfig
+
+If you have downloaded the extra package, install it with:
+
+	# ./configure --prefix=/usr &&
+	# make &&
+	# make install
+
+
+3. Configuring Window Maker
+===========================
+
+
+3.1 Config files
+================
+
+/etc/GNUstep/*, ~/GNUstep/* (or ~/.GNUstep/* with the preference-directory
+patch).
+
+
+3.2 Configuration information
+=============================
+
+Do not forget to backup your current xinitrc-file before proceeding.
+
+	cat > ~/.xinitrc << "EOF"
+	exec wmaker
+	EOF
+
+This starts Window Maker automatically after XFree86 is up and running. If you
+like to set Window Maker as the default window manager for all users on your
+system, edit /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc instead.
+
+After you have sucessfully started Window Maker, you can configure all options
+with WPrefs.
+
+
+4. Contents

+
+The Window Maker package contains
+
+	WPrefs, get-wings-flags, get-wraster-flags, get-wutil-flags, geticonset,
