Re: [wmii] no program starts with M+p: not yet solved

I still cannot use M+p to run any program.

Now the report in ~/.xsession-errors:
  wmiir: fatal: Can't open file '/rbar/status': file not found
is gone (and the status bar was always ok).

Any other idea were to look or what to do?

  Thanks for any help,
