Console Windows

My internet connection’s slow, so X over SSH isn’t usable for remote connections.

Twin might be a solution,

 

sudo apt-get install twin

 

Alternatively there’s VWM,

 

Download, make and install in the following order:

libpseudo

make && sudo make install

 

sudo apt-get install libgpmg1-dev

make && sudo make install

 

libviper

make && sudo make install

 

Viper Window Manager

sudo make && sudo make install

sudo mkdir /usr/lib/vwm/modules

 

Personally I had some problems (make wasn’t creating the modules directory, and I don’t understand how to use the application once it’s launched anyway.)
