I tried to install FVWM on Debian using
apt-get install fvwm
Everything went fine. But then when I logged in to FVWM, there was nothing there.
When I clicked, I did not get the options that I used to get on other distros, which had FVWM Pre installed.
I thought I was missing something, so I searched for FVWM in Synaptic, and tried to install everything that came up.
I now have FVWM-GNOME installed on my computer. Synaptic automatically removed the other versions that were conflicting.
Also, I am installing FVWM from the Debian CDs and not from the Internet.
Sadly, I cannot post a screenshot of my FVWM System.
Whenever I click on the Setup Form option (that I get on the menu activated upon clicking on the desktop) I just see a form but the text on it is nothing but gibberish!
Please help me..This is my first encounter with FVWM.
You can consider my understanding level ...above Newbie.
Also, I added some more stuff after reading some more on the Internet.
I did a
apt-get install xserver-xfree86
and apt-get picked up some packages from the Internet (from security.debian.org).
