I don't know if I classify as a linux noob anymore given I have been
running myth for a year, but I have never really delved into window
managers and stuff. I am running FC2 with Gnome and therefore (?)
My question is, and yes I did search the interweb, how easy is it to
install and play with this ratpoison WM without screwing up my nice
setup. If I can get it to work good the way I want it to, I might
keep ratpoison, but just in case I want to be able to go back.
Is it merely a case of doing an apt-get for ratpoison and then
tweaking a config file somewhere?
I have GMail invites, if you want one, email me direct.
