Before anyone jumps on me, I did read the FAQs and the backlogs of this
mailing list.  

Essentially, When I run Gnome (from my ~/.xinitrc: exec gnome-session),
and X starts, the window manager doesn't start.  I have the WINDOW_MANAGER
environment variable set to afterstep -- and I have the afterstep set as
the default (current) window manager in the Gnome Control Panel.  When
starting via startx -- I just don't get any transients or any window
manager features for that matter.  Any ideas?  I've tried all I've seen so

I really only want to use gfm (I think that's what it's called, the file
manager with desktop icons) -- not the panels. In that situation, would
I still need to run the gnome-session, or is there a safe productive way
to run the file manager without the rest of gnome?  Otherwise, the only
other thing I use Gnome for are the games, and they don't need the entire

I appreciate any help one can offer.
