 +====== Window Managers in MINIX ======
 +In MINIX there are three window managers available: [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Twm|Tom'​s Window Manager]], [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​JWM|Joe'​s Window Manager]] and [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Equinox_Desktop_Environment|Equinox Desktop Environment]].
 +
 +The first one, twm, is installed by default with the X.org package and the second and the third can be installed through the pkgin (tool to manage pkgsrc binary packages) utility.
 +
 +To start EDE you need to edit your ~/.xinitrc file and add a //​startede//​ line (usually at the end). Afterwards, typing //startx// on the command line will start EDE.
