Hello,

I try every day or 2 days a new way with gentoo (deleting everything and starting over) just to learn as much possible about gentoo.
I knew from earlier days when installing xorg-server i should include twm xclock and xterm.
But somehow i can't get the green menu anymore .. or resize windows or even open a new xterm with the right mouse button menu upon installing xorg-server

what do i miss?

sincerely,

Berechja Kerkdijk

I believe the green menu you're talking about is part of twm, and apparently twm is not starting anymore.
I sort of despise the default xinit but that's how xorg distributes is I suppose...

Question now is what works and what doesn't work. Are you using startx/xinit ? Do you get the xterm windows?

If xterm windows are loaded, you can try running twm to see if it's installed and working.
Code:
$ twm &

it should enable your mouse buttons on root to open a window.
