I am trying to switch from
The problem I have is that when I try
sudo awesome -r it tells me that another window manager is already running. So I have tried
killall gnome-shell && awesome & but then the screen turns black and there are usually some
^@ symbols all over the screen. At this point I do not know what went wrong and all I am able to do is reboot.
I would be glad if someone could explain to me what I did wrong and what I have to do to activate
