Does anyone use the combo arch+motif? on openbsd I use motif and it works
great, but on my arch machine I tried to get motif to work (with different
iirc), but I failed so I settled with gtk instead, thinking that this was
the standard option
anyway (and forgot to document my different attempts so I can't recall
exactly which version of
motif I tried)
