This works for me in Ubuntu 10.10 / Gnome 2.32:
- create a ~/.xinitrc, and paste this in:
exec ck-launch-session gnome-session # ck-launch-session is advised for the dbus stuff to work fine.
- chmod +x ~/.xinitrc
- symlink ~/.xinitrc to ~/.xsession
- log out
- whenever you log in, choose "User Defined Session" ("Custom ~/.xsession script") as your window manager.
- Win + M should be able to toggle maximize/minimize. Unfortunately, Gnome's Indicator Applet sometimes grabs this hotkey.
