The place for fvwm's default system-wide config in Debian seems to
be /usr/share/fvwm/default-config/config. So to get you kick-started,
just create a file named "config" in your /home/richard/.fvwm
consisting of this one line:

  Read /usr/share/fvwm/default-config/config

(leading space just here, for readability). Be warned that fvwm's
config language is... idiosyncratic. But copiously documented in
man pages. There are people out there (yes, I'm one of them) for
whom fvwm is just what the doctor ordered.
