Installing FVWM

安装fvwm There are three versions of FVWM available for Archlinux. There are so-called stable, unstable and patched releases. Stable is of version 2.4.20 (released on 6-Dec-2006) and is really robust, but it lacks many features compared with unstable release. Install stable fvwm with the following command:

# pacman -S fvwm 

Unstable release is of version 2.5.28, which has been released quite recently (20-Sep-2009). Although it is called unstable, but it has no stability issues at all. To install it:

# pacman -S fvwm-devel

The commands above will install the official version of the WM. However, if you want/need to use some more features than it provides, you can install the patched version fvwm-patched from the AUR.

or, if you have archlinuxfr (see Unofficial user repositories) added to your pacman.conf:

# pacman -S fvwm-patched

One should not mix fvwm window manager and the project FVWM-Crystal, which can be also found in Arch repositories.
