"update-alternatives --config x-window-manager" says I am using
Metacity, and that's the only installed windows-manager.
Maybe Metacity is the place to force a 2D desktop, but finding the
configuration is not easy. No config file and nothing in gconf-editor. I
found that they both switched to gsettings and dconf:
"dconf-editor" can do the configuration, in "org | gnome".
But, nothing about 2D there...
I was a bit confused about "Mutter". That's Metacity + clutter. There
are some packages installed like "mutter-common", so I found some
settings in dconf-editor about it. But the package with the binaries
("mutter") is not installed.

Is here somebody who knows how to force a 2D desktop?
