If you are like me and feel that FVWM does not meet your expectations of a modern window manager, but at the same time don't like the bloat of KDE or Gnome, you might want to give Enlightenment a try. It is extremely fast, sports many amazing-looking themes, and has been my WM of choice for many years now.
Read on to learn how to use E17 on our managed Linux workstations (including thin clients)
While a stable version of E17 hasn't been released yet, we maintain an up-to-date build on our Linux workstations. It's sufficiently stable for everyday use - in fact 3 ISG members use it as their main WM. If you want to try for yourself, the easiest way is to create .Xsession in your home directory:
This will start E17 as your window manager each time you log in.
#start gnome USB stick automounter
#load background image for transparent Eterms
#merge Xdefaults if you need them
xrdb -merge ~/.Xdefaults&
