The program is gmc, and you can just add it to G/L/A/autoexec and it will
run at login.   I have it running as such on one my boxes, and it works
really well.  I have found that you probably want to modify the feels file
that you use so that not all mouse clicks on the desktop are captured by
afterstep so that you can also get the gnome menus if you do Alt Click or
something. Like:
# Mouse actions
Mouse 1         R       N       PopUp "0"
Mouse 2         R       N       WindowList 2
Mouse 3         R       N       WindowList

Then unmodified click goes to AS, and shift/cntl/alt goes to GNOME.

There is no silver bullet.  Plus, werewolves make better neighbors than
zombies, and they tend to keep the vampire population down.
