TiT Radio Desktop Challenge Day 00

Last night on TiT Radio klaatu thought it would be a great idea to have everyone change to a lesser known desktop environment or window manager that you had never used. So my first choice was ROX-Desktop because it looks pretty cool and easy to use but I don’t think a single one of us got it to install.

Next was JWM or Joe’s Window Manager, I had tried this once when Damn Small Linux switched to it about 5 years ago. But I quickly gave up on it because I couldn’t get the terminal to open and I couldn’t get it to run from gdm. Knowing how lazy I am I wasn’t about to stick with something that would require me to change runlevels just to suffer in for a couple of weeks.

I finally decided on fvwm here is my desktop in Fedora 11 http://www.unixporn.com/screenshots/displayimage.php?pid=596&fullsize=1 I hope that in the coming two weeks I can figure out how to make this beast a beauty.
