If you just edited your .xinitrc, you can edit it back. If you erased the original lines, a backup is in /etc/skel.
Posted by lucky13 on July 14 2008,14:43I think you can also open a terminal and run switcher.lua.

I used a switch button but I can't recount where cuz I haven't been able to get back to that point. When I logged out it must have saved the setting in .xintrc so I will check that out.
Posted by mikshaw on July 27 2008,13:33The menu item to switch back probably isn't available in swm. Look in /home/dsl/.desktop (.xinitrc isn't modified by the switcher program). There should be a "wm: swm" line which you can change to "wm: fluxbox" and then restart X (ctrl+alt+backspace, then use "startx" command).
Or you can do as lucky13 suggested, which doesn't require any manual edits.
