I tried to play with the LessTif mwm a few times, but it just didn't
seem to work right. I don't know... Like it was broken or something.
What I remember is that the root window menu did not function. I tried
left/middle/right clicks and nothing... OK, I'm lazy. This was before
I tried to configure it, but I've tried since then a couple times
and gave up.

It's no big deal for me; I'm not looking for a new WM at all. Since
you mentioned mwm though, I thought I should ask...

Is there something special to make mwm do what it should do?
