I've been working on getting bluetile working on 12.04 so I can start down the path of tiling windows managers, but I have been having limited success.
I have read the (only 7!) other posts on bluetile and tried the website, but unfortunately nothing seems to address precise thoroughly enough for me to get it working.
I have tried getting gnome running on my machine via apt-get and following basic instructions from there, but without success.
apt-get for bluetile also fails (on selecting the 1gnome-bluetile` session option, unity ends up opening anyway in a buggy, unstable way). I also messed around with specifying a custom xsession for lightdm to look at and setting the window-manager to bluetile, but again without success- somehow I ended up in unity again.
I can confirm that installing bluetile on a vanilla Ubuntu instance does add
Gnome + Bluetile to the lightgdm's menu, but selecting it does nothing - it just boots into Unity.
What should I do ?
