Operating System: Linux
The echinus project features nice titlebars, multiple desktops, theming support, a simple configuration file, the ability to switch desktops with the mouse wheel, X bitmaps for title buttons, and true transparency support (through xcompmgr). There is no need to recompile or restart X to change its configuration.
You need X11 and Xft headers to compile echinus wm and the pkg-config tool.
Packages containing this stuff are probably named libx11-dev and libxft-dev
(note "-dev" suffix).
