View Full Version : [ubuntu] Configuring MWM

August 20th, 2012, 04:21 AM
Hi all,

I've installed 12.04 Server to an old machine. Since I don't need a full-featured desktop on it, I've instaled the Motif Window Manager as the default graphics environment.

It works great, however, there are a few things I'd like to change, but I found nothing about how to do it (most manuals are for older versions of Xorg/MWM, and most of the mentioned config files are no longer used).

First, the default font size is quite small. I believe this is managed by Xorg, not MWM, but again, I don't know where to look for the config file for this.

Second, it would be nice to change the background color from black to something lighter. This may be managed by Xorg as well, but I'm not sure.

Could anybody help me with these? Thank you in advance.
