    FVWM Question


    FVWM has really gotten my attention after I have came across some very interesting configs that I absolutely love.

    I really love the way you can have the thumbs of your windows like that. The only thing is, I got no clue how to do that. Can anyone walk me through getting those thumbs of my Windows to work?

    Screenshot submitted by Nuno Alexandre. He made a couple of nice screenshots which are available together with configs and window decoration buttons at his personal fvwm screenshot page.

    I saw some killer fvwm-desktops myself not long ago, I would'nt mind one of those! For example, I like the pager and desktop-icons of this one: http://fvwm-themes.sourceforge.net/s.../full/migo.png

    Me boots into gentoo
    Code:
    emerge fvwm
    Let's see what this looks like on my pc.

    Actually you have to emerge a bunch of stuff according to the fvwm gentoo installation wiki.

    I did all that stuff, and I still can't see fvwm

    Edit: All I had to do was "vi .xinitrc" change startkde to fvwm.

    You weren't kidding, this is ugly.
