Subject description: an eye-candy desktop environment light on ressources
 

This how-to is addressed to users of trinitydog, the easiest way to have fvwm-crystal installed.

FVWM - Crystal aims to create an easy to use, eye-candy but also powerful desktop environment for Linux or other Unix-like operating systems. Its goals include seeking for better ways of using window manager and providing it with eyecandy interface.

Here are some interesting links about this desktop environment :

1- https://sourceforge.net/projects/fvwm-crystal/
With this link, you have a list of its main features.

2- official website : http://fvwm-crystal.sourceforge.net/
With this link, you have features, screenshots, download, contact and documentation.

Fluviol : minimalist theme framework for FVWM[-Crystal] :
https://github.com/leycec/fluviol

Trinitydog users can install fvwm-crystal from apt (sudo apt install fvwm-crystal).

That's it, no configuration files to create or modify. After installation, log out and log in, searching for fvwm-crytal as your desktop environment.

I would like to thank a forum member for this discovery of a light and pleasing to the eyes desktop environment.

labbe5,

You're welcome Wink But doggone crystal is a tough nut to crack on some things---what we take for granted in many of our other ddogs DEs requires some real digging with crystal. It's a learning curve, no doubt.
