Out of curiosity how do you use it. I get the following error:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# flwm
Another window manager is running.  You must exit it before running flwm.
I have installed flwm into the kde environment.

LxQt does not have a window manager. That's why it's used w/ Openbox.
So... you can use Compiz (my favorite)... Flwm (for old PC's)...
Awesome (if you like keyboard driven)... the list goes on.

I haven't tried ratpoison. From what i've read it's minimalist.
Nonetheles... it should work. Just replace Openbox in LxQt settings.

For Flwm I had to extract the module
make a symlink copy of the executable from
"/usr/local/bin" to a new folder "/usr/bin"
then make a new module first.

Best Regards... :beer:

Hi ,

I have shifted the bin up one level. Link to /usr/local no longer require.
