    GUI for fvwm-themes


    Is there any GUI for fvwm-themes? Default command line scripts have extremely hostile interface and default GUI is hard to reach.

    When I try to run fvwm-themes-start I see
    Code:
    Another ICCCM 2.0 compliant WM running, try -replace
    And yes, I try to run it under fvwm.

    There's no fvwm GUI configuration that I know of; personally, I prefer manually editing configuration files to GUI utilities. But FVWM's configuration is a beast that I won't touch with a 10-foot pole...

    I'm not aware of a gui for it either. I've found fvwm-themes to be a bit confusing so prefer to use my own fvwm configs. Another option would be to go to the FVWM Forums and adopt one of the ready-to-go configs there, then modify it to suit your own needs/tastes.

    Pity. Is there at least an easy way to set up desktop background color without reading MBs of manuals and FAQs for it?

    fbsetbg/bsetbg/wmsetbg can set up the root window pixmap in various ways; look into these.
