Gnome-compiz-manager thrusts itself into .gnomerc

Bug #103246 reported by Mark Shuttleworth
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-compiz-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-compiz-manager

I have had problems during the late Feisty cycle during login, where my window manager is not started. In the course of debugging this we found the following in .gnomerc in my home directory:

export WINDOW_MANAGER=~/.gnome-compiz-manager/openbox

Apparently, that should not be there, and we should try to clean up the cases where older versions of the package might have put it there.

I can confirm this bug.

I completely removed gnome-compiz-manager, removed .gnome-
compiz-manager in ~ and then .gnomerc. I resintalled g-c-m, activated
"show tray icon" and it recreated .gnome-compiz-manager and .gnomerc
with that contents, so I must say, that it does write to .gnomerc.

had the same problem - the fix was to remove the WINDOW_MANAGER from ~/.gnomerc
