View Full Version : [kde] Can I change my windows manager?

March 27th, 2011, 10:47 PM
So I am having problems with my windows manager. I have not been trying anything fancy with it--I just found that, when I press Alt + tab it kind of freezes, and I get the bug report function.

I have KDE 4.4.2 and 4.6.2 for Kwin.

I also notice that I can more or less avoid this problem by changing windows from going to the top of the plasma netbook screen.

Yet I also notice that there is an awful lot of system resources going to Xorg and to the plasma netbook--about 10% and 70% respectively.

Am I correct in thinking, based on what I can see from other questions online, that the way forward is to just change the windows manager? Can I just download one from the repositories?

Or is there another way out of this? Many thanks for any help.
