XDarwin and Windowmaker

in macOS edited January 2014
I installed windowmaker through fink and I also have the x free 86 XDarwin. How do I actually tell XDarwin to use windomaker as the window manager? At the moment it still uses the default.

    if you installed everything in the default directories then you will cd to /sw/bin and then type the command ./wmaker.inst i believe it was

    Create a file in your home directory called .xinitrc and be sure it includes the line exec wmaker and has no other references to other window managers. Then, relaunch XDarwin and voila!
