LINUX MINT 3.2.0-23
Running the standard window manager (KDE) everything I've tried works
fine (Fire in the East). So HW isn't an issue. Performance is about
what I would expect
But I don't like KDE (or GNOME), preferring a minimalist window/desktop
environment. But therein when I launch VASSAL the initial dialog
display but doesn't work. Clearly VASSAL is expecting something from the
window manager that minimal managers don't supply. Detail: it starts,
and clicking FILE or TOOLS or HELP displays the sub-menu items, but none
can be selected by the mouse and no keyboard shortcuts work.
What is needed?
Am running my own window manager, loosely based on "Evil Window Manager"
-- no eye candy, etc. All other programs I've tried, including KDE
stuff such as okular, run fine.
