FVWM Window Manager Manual Page

Modules simply transmit text commands to the fvwm built-in command engine. The first is to run the applications which waste your default color map with a private color map. The default is OpaqueMoveSize 5 which allows small windows to be moved in mabual opaque manner but large windows are moved as rubber-bands.

You can use this to change the contents of a menu during an fvwm session. A number is taken as the number of the Xinerama screen to be used as configured in the X server.

Scroll 50 25 means to scroll left half a page and down a quarter of a page. No other application can get keyboard input although this is not the case for tear off menus. MoveToDesk is a replacement for the old WindowsDesk command, which can no longer be used.

Here is the complete list of all file locations queried manuql the default installation only the first found file is used: All virtual desk- tops must be fvwwm the same size. The quoted or first word portion in the above examples is the menu label, which appears in the menu when the user pops it up. It is well commented and can be used as a source of examples for fvwm configuration. These modules have their own man pages.


This option can be used to fig- ure out why a specific window does not appear where you think it should. If the optional manuwl value is positive, the only iconification will be allowed, and de-iconification will be inhibited.

This is usually done in the configuration file. The action following the keyword is executed whenever the menu is popped up or down. This border con- sists of a bar on each side and a small L-shaped section on each cor- ner. Either key on the root background window pops up an menu to help you get started. One may read the Xft manual page and the fontconfig man page with Xft2.

To disable this behavior, omit the key name. To switch it off, use SelectOnRelease without a key name. Lines beginning with ‘ ‘ are ignored by fvwm. This is fine, and will work, but we have yet to connect the actions of the menu operations, and the changing of the icon.

The following example binds mouse buttons 2 and 3 to a pop-up called “Window Ops”, whose definition was provided as an example earlier in this man page. FVWM has the ability to shade windows in all directions: There’s some suggestions in the main FVWM FAQ about how to do this, although that still didn’t quite emulate what I was after indeed, none of the solutions cycled back round to the first window.


All three kinds of quotes are treated in the same way. The shaped window extensions increase the window manager’s memory consumption by about 60Kbytes when no shaped windows are present, but have little effect when shaped windows are present.

The various contexts are: Sub menus are menus inside menus. If you use a line like ButtonStyle: The easiest way is to use a flat-file that just stores a list of window names or classes. False should not be given the keyboard input focus by the window manager. Raise Allows the user to raise a window.

Fvwm menus are extremely configurable in look and feel. The two colors are separated with a slash. All is equivalent to all the directions.

Equivalent to “root” when Xinerama is not used. Both horizontal and vertical values are expressed in percent of pages, so CursorMove means to move down and left by one full page. The upper left page is 0,0the upper right is Fvdmwhere N is one less than the current number of horizontal pages specified in the DeskTopSize command.
