Re: The ultimate fvwm thread

Well editing menu is easier there. ) All the rest is tricky, yes. And it lacks themes which can be simply installed due to config file syntax, i had to draw mine from scratch.

But it's funny.

Have any tips/scripts/links/ideas? Most of fvwm web pages are gone. (

Re: The ultimate fvwm thread

tartan,

I passed the link to a friend who was interested in FVWM a few days ago. Today he mailed back and said he's loving the setup and your starter kit helped a lot.

So I just wanna say thanks on his behalf. smile

Re: The ultimate fvwm thread

I am running Fvwm with Lxpanel right now, one small at the top with just the application launcher and using the one at the bottom for minimized windows like Tint2.  I think I would like to get a more traditional "Fvwm look" and use the buttons.  I like the module approach so I was wondering if you would just create a new module and pass control to it for the buttons.

If I keep the Lxpanels then I need to figure out how to hide the top one but have it overlap any window if I put the mouse on it. 

I have sort of figured out transparency in the menus but not too good with color codes yet.  I have a transparent menu with yellow letters and it looks fugly.  I'm still working on how to change the color of the window decorations and make that top part transparent.  Oh boy!  tongue

Re: The ultimate fvwm thread

Thomas, I'm also wanting to do my taskbar with FvwmIconMan/Buttons like you've got setup.  I'll post what I've got soon, I need help getting standalonetray/xclock swallowed.  PS: you gonna set your #! avatar to stitch as well? tongue  That's a nice color you and your mom put on him.

Re: The ultimate fvwm thread

big THX, I'm playing around with it now.  BTW, I tried buidling .31 from your git tree but it didn't seem to work as you explained on FVWM forums.  Is there something I'm missing?

Re: The ultimate fvwm thread

./configure && make deb-inplace  ..  gnu make configure wouldn't run. It would on the FVWM 2.5.31 tarball but not the git stuff.  I'm hurtin bad for the new 31 release and would just package it from scratch but, it seems to be a little more daunting than all my other packaging endeavors.

Re: The ultimate fvwm thread

Sorry, to make you read my mind Thomas.  You are totally correct configure didn't exist.  The utils/configure_dev.sh was what I was needing.  The CVS snapshot is kinda what I've been wanting to run anyways, thanx for all the help.(had debhelper since cb-welcome has a nice turnkey packaging/build solution)
