*** Using plwm without installing
PLWM can be run from the distribution tree. Start it with python (if you dearchived the distribution in /home/foo):
In doc, you'll want to build and read plwm.info. (After running make, you can read the built info-file in an emacs by pressing C-u C-h i and giving the path to plwm.info.)
A terse description of the example window manager is in examples/README.examplewm.
*** Using it.
There are a number of example window managers in examples/. Running the examples will start that window manager. Examing the examples is the best way to get a feel for how to configure a plwm window manager.
If you want to test window managers, or switch between them, then utils/wmm.py is a window manager manager. Read the source file for documentation.
