WindowMaker has stopped working.

Hi everyone,

I am having some problems with windowmaker. I am running FreeBSD 8.1-PRERELEASE (STABLE) and I have xorg-7.5 installed.

When I first installed everything I just used
Code:
startx
to start WindowMaker. But because The fonts suck I had to add truetype fonts and needed xorg.conf. So I followed the instructions in the handbook to configure X. Everything was going well and Xorg worked for root and for my normal login. but when I created .xinitrc, with the following

Code:
exec wmaker

and then ran
Code:
startx
I would just get a black screen with a mouse. Now everything was working fine before I used the Xorg configuration instructions and I'd kinda like to get my desktop back. IF there is anywhere I should be looking for more information please let me know.

cheers,

Brett.
