mvwm - the Modern Virtual Window Manager
« on: February 08, 2015, 05:13:03 PM »
Strictly speaking not a new window manager; a project to clean up the fvwm code. Available via git:  https://github.com/ThomasAdam/mvwm.git

Build from source by running the autogen.sh script, then:

Code: [Select]
make
sudo make install

Has the default fvwm menu and aesthetic when first logging in:



like fvwm, configured manually - no gui frontends. Configuration is pretty much the same as fvwm, but modules are named Mvwm[module] as opposed to Fvwm[module]. So some quick search-and-replace on some of my old configuration files to get a basic setup:



I've been using fvwm as a window manager since Redhat 6/Slackware 9 so I'm actually excited by this project. Apparently going to be some new features added so good luck to Thomas Adam and the crew.

^ Very nice!  Glad to see you getting excited about a WM... I know how difficult that is after testing so many for so long

Pretty smooth transition to get my old configs working -
