Things to read

Postby morbusg » Fri Apr 28, 2006 9:07 am

I thought I'd compile a list of useful links to different things about Fvwm.
So here goes (this list is a work in progress)

Your best friend; search: search.php

Manuals: http://fvwm.org/documentation/manpages/
FAQ: http://fvwm.org/documentation/faq/
Wiki: http://fvwmforums.org/wiki/
User mailing list archives: http://www.mail-archive.com/fvwm@lists.math.uh.edu/
Workers mailing list archives: http://www.mail-archive.com/fvwm-worker ... th.uh.edu/

FAQ from IRC/BB: http://edulinux.homeunix.org/fvwm/fvwmcookbookfaq.html
Intro: http://linuxgazette.net/105/adam.html
Beginners guide: http://www.zensites.net/fvwm/guide/
Config-from-scratch: viewtopic.php?t=188&highlight=scratch

Fvwm-themes: http://fvwm-themes.sourceforge.net
(note: fvwm-themes is an "add-on-program" to fvwm itself which eases theme-management, but requires themes to be made compliant to the fvwm-themes specifications. So you can't just pick up a plain fvwm-config and expect it to work in fvwm-themes)
Themes for plain fvwm:
viewforum.php?f=39
http://fvwm.org/screenshots/desktops/
http://xwinman.org/fvwm.php
Fvwm-crystal: http://fvwm-crystal.org/
(note: fvwm-crystal is a very specialized set of configurations, and needs some supporting applications for complete functionality [TODO:Linux specific?])
Fvwm-Nightshade: http://fvwm-nightshade.github.com/Fvwm-Nightshade/
(note: fvwm-nightshade is a modern configuration with different themes and layouts. It has build support for deb, rpm, Arch, Gentoo and local installation)

Decorations: http://fvwm.org/screenshots/windowdecors/
http://www.twobarleycorns.net/fvwm-decors.html
Vectors: http://fvwm.org/screenshots/vectorbuttons/
A Simple FVWM Vector Buttons Viewer: http://gromnitsky.users.sourceforge.net/js/fvwm-vector/

Thank you for this. I'd also like to add more:

http://edulinux.homeunix.org/~n6tadam/f ... styles.txt -- this seems to be a very popular topic with people at the moment. I urge people to read it, please.

http://linuxgazette.net/100/adam.html -- Session management.

http://edulinux.homeunix.org/fvwm/fvwmchanfaq.html -- although intended for IRC, it does have some additional FVWM information.

Even though linked from some of the other sources you mention I'd like to add that I keep a list of FVWM related links on my website, more specifically here.
