Re: How to install new Window manager

The correct way to install a new window manager is to use

register-window-manager --add /usr/local/bin/blah


register-window-manager --default /usr/local/bin/blah

to make "blah" your default WM.

Basically it just puts it in /etc/X11/window-managers .  The first in the
list is the default.
