Hello,

An internet search for Debian CDE produces the following page:

https://mike632t.wordpress.com/2015/...an-8-0-jessie/

which uses compilation from source.

In between I installed MWM from apt-get under Debian/Devuan on the raspberry.
Code:
apt-get install mwm
Here my config, i.e. ~/.mwmrc

The problem is mouse3+alt to resize. it requires to go south / east to make it start to resize.

Motif is very light in terms of libraries. It is definitely lighter than GTK. Motif apps are very easy to compile.
