I took on your hint and tried stuff in the autostart script.

That went perfect. Now I am online on wmaker.

I ran pidgin too. However it didn't go as smoothly. Most of the time
it didn't appear on the dock or even a window for that matter. I tried
running it from,
1. the 'Run' in the right click menu on the desktop,
2. from xterm.
However, it had worked the last time I had logged in. Kinda strange I guess.

Also, I am having trouble NM and Evolution remember the password, but
I guess that calls for another thread after some more extensive

Thanks for the help. :)
