Stacking Window Managers


CSE has a fairly large selection of stacking window managers available:

  • twm
  • ctwm
  • tvtwm
  • dtwm (which is the CDE one)
  • olwm
  • fvwm
  • fvwm2 (newer and improved fvwm)
  • afterstep (fairly new, beta, program. Use at your own risk.)

(We do not have mwm available.)

If you want to use dtwm, you really need to be using CDE. To start up CDE from an Xterminal, call /usr/dt/bin/Xsession from your .xsession file (rather than starting a window manager).
