Installing WindowMaker on Debian

Real short, but it took me a bit of searching to find how to replace Gnome as my window manager.

Start by installing the WindowMaker package:

# apt-get install wmaker

Next, as the user that you wish to run WindowMaker as the window manager:

$ echo "exec wmaker" >> ~/.xsession
$ echo "exec wmaker" >> ~/.xinitrc

Log off, then back on for it to take effect.
