How can I set up StumpWM to be my windows manager on Ubuntu 10.10? Right now I am using Compiz.
StumpWM is a very minimal window manager....
Stumpwm attempts to be customizable yet visually minimal. There are no window decorations, no icons, and no buttons. It does have various hooks to attach your personal customizations, and variables to tweak.
With Software Center:
Or in Terminal:
sudo apt-get install stumpwm
Then create a sessions file:
sudo nano /usr/share/xsessions/stumpwm.desktop
Paste the following:
[Desktop Entry] Encoding=UTF-8 Type=XSession Exec=stumpwm TryExec=stumpwm Name=StumpWM Comment=Stump window manager
Logout and login - but choose the stump session:
CTRL t + ? reveals the help screen.
