The News says:

The live-CD now only has one window manager, JWM (version 0.24), however Fvwm95 is available as a PupGet package so is only a click away. Also iceWM is available as a DotPup (we are working toward integrating iceWM more into Puppy).


But how to find it?I search "Fvwm95 AND pupget" in the forum.

But I can't find what i want.

Thanks.

Are you just having trouble where you downloaded the DotPup to? Or have you installed it already?

If you've installed it, have you exited X and then typed "xwin icewm"?

Did you try the PupGet Package Manager? It is under Setup. It will give you a list of all sorts of stuff to install. For IceWM, go to the wiki, find the dotpups by GuestToo page, and look under the heading "Window Managers" or "IceWM," I can't remember which.

Icewm can be installed with "Start - Setup - Dotpupdownloader".

IceWM:
http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=2785

PupGet:
To install a package:

* Go to Start -> Setup -> PupGet package manager
* When a window pops up, choose "Install or remove pkgs", then you'll see a two-pane window
* Left pane shows a list of packages to install. They're "left overs" of that 319 package collection (packages from Unleashed that never made it into the live-CD, that is, are not in usr_cram.fs)
* Hover mouse pointer over a package for extra information ("category" or "group" of it and how big it is)
* Click on a package to highlight it -> click on the "Add" button -> highlighted package moves to the right pane -> click "OK" -> the package will be downloaded and installed.

I'm not sure if you can find FVWM in the PupGet manager. If not, get it here:
http://ftp.nluug.nl/ftp/pub/os/Linux/distr/puppylinux/pupget_packages-1/fvwm95-2.0.43f.tar.gz
And follow these steps to install:
You may need to create an entry in /root/.packages/packages.txt if it's a newly published package that's not listed in your PupGet package manager. E.g, add: "abiword-2.2.7" "abiword-2.2.7: Wordprocessor" on "GTK2APPS 7960K" \
where 'abiword-2.2.7' should be the name of the file that you downloaded and '7960K' is the size of the file.
1. Download the package to somewhere local (e.g, /root)
2. Open Pupget package manager, you should now see the entry you added on the left pane. Click on the package to highlight it -> click on the "Add" button -> highlighted package moves to the right pane -> click "OK".
3. When asked where do you want to have the package downloaded, choose 'Local'. Then choose the location where your package is saved (e.g. /root). The installation will then begin.

not sure if this is a problem or merely a theme element, but when I'm in icewm my minimize, close, and full screen buttons at upper right corner of browser are graphics, usually the system monitor from lower right corner. Any help would be appreciated.
