remove the padding (or 3d feel) to minimised icons

Problems with decorations or key/mouse bindings? Or perhaps you have a cool mouse/key binding you want to share.

remove the padding (or 3d feel) to minimised icons

Postby voltumna » Thu Jan 12, 2017 12:32 pm

Hi All,
I have been trying to remove the 3D embossed frame feel (is it the padding?) from the icons of minimised apps but I cannot seem to be able to, although, if I minimise either a pidgin chat window where the contact has a pic or Adobe, then the icon does not have a frame/padding,
I hope it was clear what I want to achieve

can you help?

Thanks

Unsure exactly what you mean, but looking through the fvwm man page I found the following styles that may be of use.

IconBackgroundRelief and IconBackgroundPadding

These are default to 2, and maybe need to be set to 0 so there is no Relief or Padding around the icons.

You can read more details on these styles in the man page.
