fvwm-crystal - Desktop environment based on fvwm2


fvwm-crystal is a desktop environment based on fvwm2. A file manager may be optionally used to display desktop icons, ROX-filer and nautilus are supported for this task. FVWM-crystal furthermore has UI integration for various music players, among them audacious and mpd. There is also a very powerful menu system that has an extensive default configuration but may be customized and extended by each user to fit personal requirements. The fvwm-crystal script launches fvwm-crystal and may be called, e.g., from your ~/.xinitrc file.
