Debian on Planet's Gemini computer is great but in my opinion, a taskbar as well as overlapping windows is not a good thing for such a small screen. In addition, the Gemini has the great advantage of having a real keyboard, it must be used.

So I tried to get closer to the use of a smartphone, with windows that appear on the entire screen without overlapping and that we switch one behind the other without a taskbar but with effective keyboard shortcuts. All with an auto login so you do not waste time on startup.

I realized a procedure to install LightDM and DWM on Planet Gemini computer (tested on wifi only model) for a new user experience, namely:
- auto login as gemini user;
- no task bar;
- by default, windows are managed in monocle mode, they are displayed on totality on the screen same as a mobile device;
- easy control with keyboard;
- Rofi application launcher;
- preconfigured shortkey...

Here you can see the desktop, on top at left, you have 2 workspaces; at right the status bar with lan, battery, audio and time informations:

Here you can see Chromium on workspace 1:

Here it's the terminal Konsole with application launcher Rofi on workspace 2:

In bonus:
- battery level works;
- wifi works;
- brightness keys works;
- audio volume keys works;
- shortkeys to reboot and shutdown (immediately).

For bad things:
Special functions (volume, brightness and other) with FN key not works but special characters works with no problem.

The whole procedure with the necessary files is at this address:

Hoping that this little job will serve you too.

See you.
