I am unsure what your asking here but assume you want to find the different
window managers on your system. Do this: find / -name "*fvwm*" and also
You should find all the info you need to change win managers. For example
on my system the fvwm stuff is in /var/X11R6/lib/fvwm/ and the xinit stuff
in /var/X11R6/lib/xinit/ To make fvwm start up put .xinitrc in your home
directory. You can use the system examples located in the above
By the way I also think the idea of copying win95 is a bad idea as it
implies that linux needs to copy other OS's ideas. I can see the argument
that it may make it more comfortable for windows users to start using linux
however if this demonstrates the need for a better win manager then the
best thing to do is to write a win manager that exceeds the capabilities
and ease of use of all others on the market.
