OK, here's how I got windowlab working.
First, 'emerge windowlab'. Sounds like you've got that part covered.
Second: I changed to the /usr/share/xsessions/ directory. I poked around for a bit, and decided to try using fluxbox.desktop as a template. I copied fluxbox.desktop to windowlab.desktop, and edited the file to look as follows:
- Code: Select all
Comment=This session logs you into Windowlab
# no icon yet, only the top three are currently used
Third: Log out to kdm, and boom.... There's a Windowlab entry in my sessions panel.
I select Windowlab, and log in...
The screen clears so that only the pretty Sabayon-Linux background is showing, and I await a pretty Windowlab desktop to alight my screen....
Nothing is happening, but since I've been drinkin', I stare at the pretty Sabayon-Linux background alittle longer and wait for something to happen...
I glance over at the amber light on my hard-drive, and nothing is happening there either...
I scratch my head and stare at the pretty Sabayon-Linux background alittle longer...
I decide to get brave (I jump outta planes after all), and right click on the screen to see what happens.
Well guess what, when I right click on the screen, I get like six or seven simple options. When they say Windowlab is minimilist, they wasn't kiddin'. There is truly nothing to it (damn, Windowlab only takes up 3.5 MG of RAM). You get a blank screen.
Anyhow, let me know if this works for you.
