Hi Chris,

if you used to like it, why do not like it now? fvwm is available for
install via synaptic package manager. With its family of "depends on"
Synaptics tells  that it requires ~19 Mb of disk space and needs to
download ~7 Mb (It's always those dependent relatives that bite you in the
bum when installing stuff onto lubuntu). Lubuntu is an extra low-fat
version, but if your computer has worked okay with fvwm in the past, there
is no need to turn your back on it. Yes, I'm sure one the guys who loves
playing with things can come up with a 'Terminal / CLI' version of how to
achieve all this - but that should put you back into familiar territory.
Just remember, lubuntu can run any application from the repository :)
