Description:

A modular fvwm configuration for these who would like to try fvwm. A mixture of sample configuration file and howto intended to explain the basics of fvwm configuration by examples.

Extract the archive and copy EN or RU (for English and Russian speaking users correspondingly) folders containment to your ~/.fvwm

Open the files one by one with your text editor and edit them following the instructions, and in about 40 minutes you will get your own simple fvwm config.

Not all what fvwm can give you but a nice opportunity to start working with it.

Write me @crunchbang PM or gmail if it doesn't work, I'll check what can be done.

Use fvwm 2.5.31, which is most likely fvwm-devel package. Would not work properly with 'stable' one due to moving some options under Style command.

I never give people any advice on filesystems 'cause I just do not know how do they work. It was someone else. %)

I would appreciate bug reports, pointing out bad English and maybe 'themes' - folders with pixmaps for window decors named decors/PositionState and pieces of config split into several files as provided in this pack to make changing appearance easier.

Hardly could remember, it's for a long time. Cool yet non-distractive.

thanks.
your theme is nice too.
i'm not used to these window managers, does ir work for openbox too? i didn't know where to put the files and folders.

No, it would not work with openbox at all. It has similar (even better) functionality but it's completely different and takes more time to set up.

Check out the video link.
