    FVWM startup configuration

    I've recently converted to FVWM and am wondering how I can get the FVWM Module "Window List" to load on startup.

    Obviously I need to make a change to ~/.fvwm/startup in the form : "Read .start-FvwmButtons"

    However I can't figure out what I need to put in place of "FvwmButtons".

    Anybody know the string for Windows List?

    Well, i think this is a built-in feature. You just have to define a key-/Mouse-sequence to open the WindowList. Normally Alt-Tab opens it, unless Alt-Tab has been defined elsewhere. I have an entry, with which the WindowList gets opened when i middle-click on the backgroud:
    Mouse 2 R A WindowList NoCurrentDeskTitle

    But you know: man fvwm really is there to help you... Just search for "WindowList" and go a few matches, then there is a description of exactly what you search.
