Hi,

How can I start fvwm2? I tried these cmd:

# fvwm2
# Xorg -config xorg.conf.new & sleep 2; fvwm2

Both gives me an error, "could not open display".

How should I start a window manager "properly"?

TIA

Thanks, that works. Now, which one do I use, /usr/local/bin/fvwm or /usr/local/bin/fvwm2, as both files exists in my system.

TIA
