I would like to know how I can easily install dwm window manager on Ubuntu. It would not matter if you only know how to install awesome window manager as they are alike and I like them both. It does not matter if you know through a ppa or how to install through terminal.

It should be pretty straight forward:

sudo apt-get install dwm

Then just logoff, and at the welcome screen choose dwm as your window manager.
