Re: Problem running Xwpe

Are you running Netscape at the same time?  If so, start netscape with

netscape -install

The problem you're having is that the X colormap is being eaten up by 
another program, and Xwpe cannot allocate color cells the way it 
wishes.  The easiest way to fix this is to stop other programs from eating 
the colormap.  Netscape is the usual culprit.  -install tells Netscape to 
use a private colormap, and not eat the shared one Xwpe uses.

At some point I will add this to the poorly maintained FAQ:
