Re: Adding Icon Dynamically to Dock

I don't think you can add/remove icons from FvwmButtons without reconfiguring the buttons and relaunching them. An alternative is to make a single button for each drive. And then place them on your desktop somewhere. Something along the lines of the following link may help. http://fvwmforums.org/wik...

Re: SetEnv Fvwm Variable $[w.class]-$[w.id]

Didn't look at the details, but some suggestions. First use InfoStore variables, not environment variables for this. They will be easier to work with and these do not need to be in the environment. # Stores the desk number in a variable InfoStoreAdd Desk-$[w.id] 1 # Returns the desk number $[infosto...

Re: Open App Icon to App Desktop

My understanding is when you apply StickIcon style it makes the window Stick when Iconified so it will move desks/pages with you. To restore it back on the original page you will have to use a custom deiconfiy function or FvwmEvent to trigger a function when windows are DeIconified that will test wi...

Re: FvwmScript - How to bind different mouse buttons?

I'm surprised the actions defined in FvwmButtons didn't work. In the manpage I noticed this flag for Swallow NoFvwmModule / FvwmModule And by default it will treat FvwmScript as an FvwmModule and I wonder if this is changing things. Maybe add the NoFvwmModule flag to your Swallow line and see if tha...

Re: Are Decors really going away?

Don't hold your breath waiting for fvwm3. Fvwm2 is now mostly frozen. Only work I see going on in fvwm2 is bug fixes. Any new features in fvwm2 won't be ground breaking if any more get added. There has been talk about fvwm3 and if any active development gets done in fvwm it will be in that direction...

Re: BUG: xterm icon label not displayed properly?

Please try 2.6.7. There was a bug that was fixed somewhere there that dealt with something similar to this. I would have to track down the details, but please try the current stable release and see if the issue is the same.

Afiak you wont be able to get tabs. Though this might work Place all the windows on top of each other (fvwm can do this) and then use something like FvwmIconMan and a limited list of windows (say FvwmIconMan that shows all xterms) and then you can select the window in FvwmIconMan and it will bring i...

Fvwm doesn't use a compositor.

You can use something like xcompmgr for a compositor, but these are not part of fvwm.
