I just installed DWM by compiling it from the most recent source code from
I also setup a
. That way I was able to select DWM in my Gnome Display Manager.

The problem is that even though I have not changed the default colors my background is now purple and my cursor is white.
How can I get rid of the background and the white cursor? Could gdm be the problem?

For reference I wrote and used this script to install DWM:


set -e

# install dependencies
sudo apt update
sudo apt install build-essential libx11-dev libxinerama-dev sharutils libxft-dev

# obtain the source
mkdir -p "$HOME/src"
cd "$HOME/src"
git clone

# install it
cd dwm
sudo make clean install

# make it visible for the display manager
(cat | sudo tee /usr/share/xsessions/dwm.desktop > /dev/null)
