    thanks a lot!
    One question: is this still as customixable as fvwm? i.e is it like fvwm but with a very nice config?
    If it is then i think it would be a good idea to rename the topic to fvwm-crystal.. just to kill possible confuion

    thanks again

    Re: Howto install Crystal Window Manager

    Someone is giving me an older computer in a few days, so I'm going to be testing crystal, icewm, and fluxbox, at least on it. Possibly also going to test windowmaker and enlightenment if I get daring.

    I want to set it to the side and use it as an inhouse server for music and image files we all would rather not keep hogging our respective hard drives.

    Just installed it again, and all I have is basic fvwm.

    *edit:

    so I went to the repositories and installed it, lol.

    As advertised. Now to find out where to tweak stuff. I don't like terminal coming up when I right click the desktop, and I need locomo or is it lomoco... to load automatically along with xmodmap. I'd used it before, so I knew what to expect. I can say that navigating the toolbar can be an adventure .

    Note that the package is now in Edgy (universe), all you need is:

    sudo apt-get install fvwm-crystal

    Then logout and change the session when you login again

    Re: Howto install Crystal Window Manager

    i am using 6.10 server on vmware player.

    after i did "sudo apt-get install fvwm-crystal", it downloaded, configured, installed with no problem.

    but when i reset, and tried "startx", it says command not found

    how do i start up fvwm?

    i m a newbie, please excuse my lack of knowledge.

    You need to install xorg too. The startx command is part of the xorg package; just installing fvwm-crystal doesn't include that one.

    It can also be installed on Dapper with a deb file, if you use this file.

    Oh here is my screenshot running it on Dapper Drake xubuntu.

    sudo dpkg -i fvwm-crystal*

    You'll probably get dependency errors at this point.

    sudo apt-get -f install

    That will install the dependencies and configure fvwm-crystal.
